Les attended Centre College in 1974 and that’s when his ceramic career began. After graduation, he worked in various community classes around central Kentucky. Les continued his ceramic career in 1982 with an apprenticeship under a Master Potter, Charles Count, in Rising Fawn, Georgia. Once he completed his apprenticeship, Les decided to move back to Kentucky and establish an in-home studio. In 2010, Broadway Clay was established by Les and another Frankfort potter.
“As a potter I am obliged to produce wares which are demonstrating the highest level of craftsmanship, aesthetically pleasing, functional, and priced so that people can afford to purchase and enjoy using them.”
