Ceramics in Many Styles


I am a ceramic artist out of Tucson, Arizona and studied studio art at the University of Arizona. My passion for creating and designing with clay takes many forms including mosaics,sculpture, and functional pottery.

I served as the Art Project Manager from 2009-2018 for a community art project in Tucson called Ben's Bells where I oversee large scale mosaic murals and other ceramic based projects. 

My ceramic art pieces are available for purchase and I am available to do commissioned or custom work. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss a custom piece.

Thanks for visiting Crooked Tree Ceramics!

"In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree, "Look at me...I'm tall, and I'm straight, and I'm handsome. Look at're all crooked and bent over. No one wants to look at you." And they grew up in that forest together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and the straight tree, and they said, "Just cut the straight trees and leave the rest." So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day.”
