I started working in ceramics during high school in 1965 working and studying with David Suits, Clayton Bailey and Tom Lawless. College study was with Sue Eisler, Peter Voulkus, Jack Canon, Dan Anderson, Tasheko Takazu, Wayne Higby and Ken Ferguson completing a Master in Fine Art in Ceramics and Sculpture. Post graduation study continued with Paul Soldner and Tony Heslop. Sandy taught secondary education in Saint Louis, Missouri and Colorado Springs, Colorado. Later, he taught at Colorado College and the Bemis Fine Art Center. Over the years, Sandy has received numerous awards, participated in many shows and has work displayed in collections across the United States.

Artist Statement

The environment of Colorado and the Southwest significantly influences my work. I draw from the energy of the mountains, sky, weather, plains, grasslands, rivers, wetlands and our urban environments.
My sculptures represent the energy found in totems and the interaction of the positive and negative spaces created by the sculpture's shapes. These represent moments in time depicted in a static state.
