Jack has been an active artist exhibiting his work in the Adams County area as well as regionally juried art shows for over 40 years. He is a juried member of the PA Guild of Craftsmen since 1978. He also teaches and demonstrates for many non-profit organizations and has been an artist-in-residence at many local schools and institutions. Jack has been an active member of the Adams County Arts Council since its beginning. He works with all types of clay but in the the past 40 years he has been focusing mainly on reduction fired glazes on porcelains. Jack has recently returned to his love of Raku pottery after a 20 year hiatus. The piece entitled "Harvest" has been accepted into the PA Art of the State, an annual juried exhibition held at The State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg.  The exhibit will show this September.  Jack says, "I believe my work reflects the nature that I am surrounded by daily."
