In his words: “Clay can be found in almost every part of the Earth. The Earth gives humanity freely. Not everyone accepts the gift. I am thankful that the earth gave me clay, and that it offer it self to me to have its ancient self to be allowed to be molded by a person like me whose days are numbered. I look forward to working with my long time colleague and friend Chris Suarez. I would like for us to grow as artist by pushing each other through hard work, discussions, and critiques at Township10.”
