Making Play Matter since 1965.

I bring the play circuits into all realms of creativity, business, culture, religion & politics. 
you can get more play less work in your life with my regular feeds on various free services like Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook and Flickr. You can get really fine pottery and ceramic art at my Etsy shop and, you can support me in a general way here! 

I'm in the process of learning this platform. Please bear with me as the rewards and levels shift as I see what offers work best. Remember, you can stop your support at anytime if you're not happy with my creative output. 

Remember, this is science, people. 

Using photographs, ceramics, painting, & drawings, folded paper, dances, performances, public happenings, -in general ART- I make Minneapolis and its surrounds more playful, beautiful, thoughtful & fun.
Support me. Be a Play Maker yourself

$18 of $100 per month
When I reach $100 per month, I'll be able to take days off work and make new work. This art will be available, first to all my patrons.
