Clayton joined Architectural Woodcraft in early 2013. Originally from Ohio, he moved to North Carolina in 2004 to take classes/teach at the Penland School of Crafts in the glass medium. After a handful of years working in various glassblowing studios, Clayton moved to Asheville with his wife Amber, a metalsmith.
In 2012 they bought a house from the 1920s and Clayton began working at Architectural Woodcraft soon after. Working with the skilled craftsman at AW has given Clayton relevant skills to renovate and add to his own home to accommodate two daughters. Clayton assists with restoration, finishing, installation, and anything else required to keep things moving as smoothly as possible!
