An old house in a once crime ridden neighborhood fallen into disrepair, formerly a gang headquarters rises from the ashes.
Phoenix Grove is now an urban farm and pottery studio, where earth and minerals are reborn into art.
Phoenix Rising Pottery Studio is a local business, supporting the local economy and the arts. It is also the realization of a life long dream to have my own pottery studio, which is currently located in the basement of my 100 year old house on Tacoma’s Hilltop.
About the artist
In 2011, after a cancer scare, I opted to leave my high stress, soul sucking job in the corporate world so that I would have the time and energy I needed to heal and recover from two surgeries.
Three years later, I am healthy and choosing to live a much more satisfying life working in the non-profit sector, growing organic fruits and veggies for the neighborhood and food distribution programs and dedicating himself to my art.
