Currently the Artist Resident at Pleasant Hill Pottery in Pleasant Hill, Oregon.
Pleasant Hill Pottery, located on 10 acres just outside of Eugene, Oregon, was founded in 2000 by Tom Rohr and Kathryn Finnerty. PHP was purchased in 2012 by Jesse Jones and his wife, Lauren. The pottery is home to four wood-fired kilns. The first to be constructed on the property - a 60 cubic foot two-chambered wood, biodiesel and salt kiln nicknamed Pepino - was built in 2001. A 110cf Anagama (The Tomagama) followed in 2007. A 30cf wood/biodiesel soda kiln was built in 2012, and a 25cf wood/biodiesel train kiln followed in 2014. Pictures of these kilns and the beautiful surfaces that they produce can be found here.
