Born and raised in Denver, Frank touched his first clay at East Denver High School in 1969 and has been making pots ever since. He earned a BA in Ceramic Art from James and Nan McKinnell at Loretto Heights College in Denver and apprenticed under David Blakeslee in Lafayette, Colorado. In 1979 Frank and his father in law built a workshop and kiln in Brighton Colorado where he worked for a decade before buying the Two Potters workshop and gallery in Littleton.
Frank and his wife Sue operated that business for 15 years, producing a full range of both stoneware and decorative raku. In 2001 the couple bought the Woodland Inn B&B in Woodland Park, Co. which included a pottery showroom. This business closed in early 2020 after twenty great years and Frank is now making useful stoneware as a part time obsession.
Frank seeks to balance his own creative impulses with solid functionality and an awareness that color is a very important part of most peoples homes and lives.
