ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

This is hardly the best of mediums for me to express in a deep way my understanding of the way things are. There is a profound connection to be made at any moment on our path.
Forgive me for lacking the words or images to convey my true self. We all have within us a soul. I wish to connect in a way that is seemingly impossible here. Through my creating of artworks and my meditation practice I am on some level able to. I will do my best to share these things with you then…

I’ve spent my entire life in the visual arts. I mostly work with clay, but am versed in bronze, printmaking, painting, welding, etc. my father was a well known artist during the middle of the last century, and my experiences with him had a profound impact on me. I’m constantly dealing with carrying on his legacy, from archiving his work, to photographing it for exhibitions, to meeting with art dealers, etc. I grew up in a pretty amazing world and am honored to be a part of it. I spent my childhood in museums and galleries, looking at every kind of art. Being the son of an Abstract Surrealist was strange, and wonderful!


I’ve worked assisting many great artists. I am presently studio assistant to the most important living American ceramic sculptor. My duties range from the technical aspects such as preparing clays and glazes, which require constant testing. I also assist in the design and of course fabricating his works. If this sounds amazing, you should know that I often work as late as 4am It’s hard work! I also teach artists, and teach art to students of all ages, from elementary school to college. Most recently I've taught at Pasadena Polytechnic school, and Pasadena city college. I also photograph artwork for a living. I've photographed for museums and famous artists, Such as my father and many of his contemporaries. I’ve photographed Rembrandts and Rauchenbergs. But I will gladly shoot for anyone who needs a really good image of his or her work.

As a child I spent my summers and any long holidays on my family's ranch in the central valley. I drove the harvest, and herded the sheep, and repaired, the always-breaking machinery. Sometimes my cousins and I would sneak off and swim in our lake. I still like to visit and help my family in any way possible. It's a very beautiful place.

I was classically trained (the oboe,) and have a soft spot for classical music and oddly bass instruments (as in the opposite of treble,) as my sister plays the cello and my brother the bassoon.

I meditate. The form I practice is called Zazen. I have been "sitting" for many years, and yet realize that I am just a beginner. When my meditation teacher turned 100 years old and for a gift I made him 100 teacups. Those cups are used in the meditation hall to this day for the tea ceremonies. I'm fascinated with the internal landscape, and love to traverse it. Something about watching the breath... it's not to say I’m not well traveled, I’ve been around the world a few times, and have had many wonderful experiences. We exist in an infinite universe, both internally and externally. I enjoy them both equally, that's all. I have been wealthy and poor, the quality of experience is what counts, and money doesn't change that. Having a bigger carbon footprint didn't bring me joy, opening my heart did.

Last read:

I have a mild dyslexia thus don't spend much time reading as it exhausts me. i do enjoy technical books such as those pertaining to ceramic technology and the soul.
