Bio / CV

Tim grew up in Mid Coast Maine in the small lobstering village of Owls Head. The texture of the rocky coast-line and rich personalities of the hardworking community have continuously been strong influences on his work.

Tim attended the University of Maine where he studied Studio Arts with a minor in Education. During this time he worked for a local production potter, where his passion for wheel throwing was indelibly sparked. Tim was enthralled at how a cylinder could grow and then expand out into beautiful volumetric forms.

In 2000, Tim graduated from the University of Southern Maine, earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a concentration in Ceramics. He then moved to Washington, D.C. to pursue a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Ceramics at The George Washington University (GWU), where he graduated with honors in 2003.

In 2001 Tim was awarded a graduate teaching assistant ship and went on to be an adjunct professor at GWU from 2002 to 2004. During that time he also taught several courses in ceramics and design at Northern Virginia Community College.

In 2004 Tim joined the faculty of the Ceramics Department at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C. where he is currently teaching.

At this very moment, Tim is throwing sculptural vessels on the wheel, where he is exploring the volume, expansion, fluidity, and implied movement of clay.
