Glenn was captivated by the art, craft and process of ceramics, which became a life-long pursuit with many lapses and detours along the way. His initial exposure to Raku pottery was at the studio of Bernard Leach in St. Ives, Cornwall, UK. Pottery took a hiatus until later in life. With the freedom of retirement, he rekindled his interest and built a studio so he could actively continue this pursuit.
Glenn's pots are wheel-thrown vessels with hand built and found object attachments. Incorporation of hand-built pieces and found objects enhance the ceramic form and distinguish his work.
Glenn is the recipient of several awards and his pottery has garnered professional acknowledgment at local and regional arts and crafts shows and exhibitions. He works from the studio he built in Peconic, NY.
