“Natural building materials are my passion. My commitment to clay as a building material first awakened in me as I developed my MFA thesis concept around “modular sculpting components”. I created site-specific installations using salvaged brick as well as hand made clay blocks and cast concrete pieces… Today, as a builder and designer, I am an advocate for the use of natural building materials wherever possible and in ways that are both appropriate and sustainable. Passive solar design when incorporated with thermal massed earthen materials is an exceptional energy conservation solution. When combining natural plant-based insulation, cob and clay plaster wall finishes, the advantages and sustainable implications are quite significant.” Address: Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
