Skip is a ceramic artist who works out of this studio in Miramar Beach, Fl. Miramar Beach is located in the beautiful Northwest Florida Panhandle. Prior to relocation in Miramar Beach, Skip worked out of the Chastain Arts Center and City Gallery located in Atlanta.
Skip has studied under some of the most respected and influential potters in the United States. He regularly attends workshops at many of the renowned art schools in the country.
Skip likes to experiment with various glazing and firing techniques such as crystalline, salt, wood, raku and multiple glaze layering. He produces both functional and non functional pottery.
At this point is Skip's career, much of his work is donated to local charity auctions and exhibited in a few select galleries. Due to Skip's strong feelings about the "Mentality of Clay" he regularly gives talks about the benefits of the wheel for individuals suffering from PTSD, depression and anxiety. When Skip moved to the Florida panhandle he had a vision to establish several ceramics teaching studios in the area. He was able to realize that vision and as a result the area has several studios up and running. One of the studios is with the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County and the other is affiliated with the JLeon Gallery and Studio located in Miramar Beach.
Skip's website is easy to navigate. In addition to his about page he has included multiple pages on examples of his work. These pages include interesting examples including crystalline, cone 6 glaze runs and raku. Check out the photos of goings on around the studio and kiln.
Currently Skip is working to meet deadlines for several charity auctions along with new pieces for current juried galleries.
