My Studio

For more than 25 years my studio has been located in an old three-story, 1890's vintage, post-and-beam-constructed building. Originally the home of the Cosmo Buttermilk Soap Company (who exported most of their production to Europe) ....and next the home of the Chicago-Detroit Bag Factory ... and until 1982, the home of the Chase Bag Factory, this classy structure is now known as The Old Bag Factory. Currently, the home to a covey of producing artists and craftsmen, as well as a collection of high-quality, entrepreneurial businesses, The Old Bag Factory has become a destination point in Northern Indiana for persons seeking high-quality hand- made arts and crafts.

In November 2010 I sold the pottery studio at the Old Bag Factory to my long-time employee and friend, Mark Goertzen. The pottery will continue under his direction at the same location.

Mark, as the new owner, very graciously invited me to become a "permanent visiting artist" at the studio. So I will continue to make and sell my personal work at the Goshen studio....moving into the next phase of my life as a ceramic artist.
