A second generation New Mexican. His father was brought to New Mexico at the tender age of 18 months. Mike began his journey of throwing pottery over ten years ago at UNM’s Continuing Education Center. He discovered a love for clay in his first session. Almost immediately, he started to carve designs onto his pottery that represents his ancestral heritage and southwestern roots. His work is inspired by the beautiful and rich designs that can be found within the African, African American and Native American cultures.
Working with clay has enabled him to express his creativity that has greatly enriched his life. He is honored that others enjoy and cherish his pottery pieces created over the years. Mike is a New Mexico State Fair award-winning artist
