In 1996, the Mint Museum of Art gave me the oppurtunity to document some of North Carolina's finest potters. Six months later we had documented over thirty potteries and had photographed over 7000 pieces in the permanent collection. I have also performed documentary work for the Anthropology Dept. of Wake Forest University and the Asheville Art Museum.
