University and studied ceramic design in Kuopio Finland.  He spent one year working and studying

“I believe in form and function, craft
and industry, which all need to be considered to create a balance in beauty. Knowing beauty is just a perception it
allows me to use clay as a natural vehicle to transport my ideas. My ideas are
influenced by my past and my present surroundings. I find acceptance that each
idea will not be successful and believe if I continue the process of creating,
my perception of success will change. I find wood firing to be the most
efficient artistic tool in finishing my work.”
