Hello, my name is Phillip and I make pots because it’s so much fun!

I started making pottery in the summer of 2016 with celebrated Potter and Ceramicist Ken Turner in the Hamada Ceramics studio at DigiPen Institute of Technology where I studied and earned my BA in Music and Sound Design.  Under Ken’s expert teaching, I learned the basics of pottery and quickly found myself addicted to throwing on the wheel. 

In the summer of 2019, I moved to Maryland to start my new job at Oxide Games, a video game company based in Timonium, as Audio Designer working on their first in-house title Ara, A History Untold.  I immediately joined the New Phoenix Pottery Studio in Cockeysville Maryland and started taking classes with local Potter and Ceramicist Brad Blair.  I did my first wood firing at the Baltimore Clayworks Studio under the instruction of Vianney Paul in the fall of 2022. After moving to Hampden Baltimore I have found a new home at the Potter’s Guild of Baltimore where I became a member in 2024 after taking a class with Jen Wilfong.  I feel so lucky to be in Baltimore surrounded by such a vibrant and talented group of potters to learn from!
