In 1992, Moench fled a desk job doing legal work to pursue a full-time career in ceramics. He began his career by producing garden sculptures, tiles, and functional house ware. Internationally acclaimed Master Potters have inspired and instructed his technique and craft.
In 2000, Chris’ clay work took a wondrous new direction when he created his first prayer wheel. Later, mounted on a revolving stand at an outdoor gallery, the wheel became a vessel for people to place thoughts and prayers inside on pieces of paper. Today, Moench works full-time designing and sculpting modern prayer wheels that have been revolving and evolving at public exhibits across the west.
