I got my introduction to wet carved concrete in 1982 from my mentor the late Jack B. Hastings. For the next few years I slowly pursued the art form. By 1990 I was fully into concrete sculpting. Before long I was doing the craft fairs of the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists and placeing my work in galleries. In 2002 I started teaching an occasional workshop in the technique and by 2008 I was traveling the country, primarily out west, doing numerous workshops at Art Centers, Museums and Individual Artists' Studios. Then the pandemic hit, the traveling stopped and I let my web site lapse.
Although the technique has been around for many decades, other than myself and a few others, no one that I am aware of is continuing to explore the wide range of creative possibilities this simple and diverse form of expression presents. During the past few years I have made a few planters and some large, functional landscape features here at home. I am once again going to travel to select locations to teach and I am open to perhaps small or personal workshops here at Sandpudding Studio or on the road. I am also willing to explore any commission request and happy to give advice to those that may want to explore the medium.
Now I am putting myself back online primarily because a few workshops are starting to come about and anyone interested can get an idea of what is involved and what they can make. Also, for those clicking around the net to perhaps get excited about the wide range of possibilities the technique presents and learn how to wet carve concrete.
Currently my creative activities are involved with vegetable gardening and exploring nature.
