Many years ago, Rick relocated from Florida to New Mexico for an executive position to run an Albuquerque R&D group and then discovered Corrales. For ten years, Rick directed “energetic” materials research, design and testing. In his spare time, he built his pottery studio and installed his commercial vineyard. For the last 19 years, he has been producing and selling his unique functional and whimsical pottery, and grapes for Corrales vintners, and teaching private ceramics in his studio.
His work can be seen in his studio by appointment, in local Corrales art shows, and in various galleries in the Albuquerque area.
