I trained as an art teacher at the South Australian School of Art from 1962-64 and then spent three years developing a specialisation in ceramics under lecturer Ben Kypradikis before teaching in secondary schools.
I attended 3 years of night classes under Bill Gregory, who taught a non-functional, conceptual approach to ceramics that I found appealing. I started to throw and assemble geometric forms into complex sculptures and had my first one-man show at Bonython Galleries at North Adelaide
After 3 years of teaching I resigned and travelled overseas. I got teaching jobs and worked as a studio potter in London for two years, visiting Europe, North Africa, and Scandinavia.
I had a lecturing position in ceramics and sculpture in New York at Columbia University Teacher College for a year. On my return to Australia in 1971 I started lecturing in sculpture at the Torrens CAE School of Art and later at the South Australian Schhol of Art in Stanley Street , North Adelaide and later at the School of Art at Underdale and then UNISA at City West Campus as a Senior lecturer in Digital Studies
I put together a book of 21 Australian artists that worked with clay an other media called 'Modern Australian Sculpture: Multi-Media with Clay', published by Rigby in 1977.
Author Noris Ioannou in his book 'Ceramics in South Australia 1836-1986' wrote ... 'his role in the development of sculptural ceramics in South Australia is described by making sculptures in a variety of media, with examples of his work illustrated on his website.'
