Here's what I do: I "retired" in 2010 and am now back in the pottery studio where I throw functional stoneware and porcelain pots. I've been throwing pots since 1977. You can see some of my work by going to (website hidden) or come on in to the For ArtSake Gallery located in the Nye Beach area of Newport. The gallery is right next door to Nana's Irish Pub and two doors down from Panini (love their pizza by the slice and their baked goods).
Former Benedictine monk, former cop (13 yrs), former Family Therapist---lots of formers, but I've come around "full circle," as it were, to making mugs and bowls on the potter's wheel.
I have a small airplane (C-182) and I love to fly. I also LOVE meeting people and making new friends. Hope we can do that soon!!! --Jacob
