Originally a ceramicist with a craftsman’s interest in architectural integrity, Buddy abandoned his clay and potter’s wheel when he developed a way to meld the warmth and handmade quality of pottery with the strength, versatility, and architectural applicability of concrete. His extensive product development and practiced understanding of the material coincided with the growth of international interest in concrete as a widely available and sustainable material.
