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. Skip's popular coastal series mugs have been well received along the Emerald Coast.
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. Skip's vision also includes offering ceramics classes through the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County's recently completed ceramic school. Special emphasis will be extended to children and adults of need.
