His experience in making beautiful pottery has led him to representation throughout the southeast. He now makes his home in Swannanoa, NC, where he also has his own Morning Sky Studio.
At the BMCA Clay Studio Geoff teaches a basic clay class, including wheel throwing, as well as a class in raku technique and firing. Raku is a Japanese low-fired pottery that is usually fired in a special barrel or pit with items such as sawdust or newsprint added to enhance the glazes.
Geoff studied at various schools and studios in North Carolina when pottery was experiencing a renaissance in the 1960's. He has experimented with various clay bodies, glazes, and firing techniques.
As a teacher, Geoff is admired and emulated by his students, from age 3 to retirees. He is patient and encouraging with folks who start working with clay for the first time.
