In 2008 Michael was laid off from his day job as a senior web designer and it turned out to be the best thing that could ever have happened to him. He quickly realized this was his big opportunity to re-build his life exactly the way he wanted it and on his own terms, so he started focusing on developing his clay hobby into a full time business.

Michael's work is continually evolving, but he does follow a few self imposed guidelines; keep it simple, include his love of plants, and make pieces he would buy himself. He hand crafts his ceramic pieces at his studio in Denver, CO.
