|My hand-built figurative sculptural
forms range from 1' to 20' in scale.
On much of my work I write stories, poetry or journal
writings. Many of the writings reflect on the perceptions we develop
about who we are, about the importance we put on "surface things",
our clothes, our looks, our money, and how they can define, and
at times trap us.
I'm intrigued with objects that hold life... the shell
of the hermit crab, the cocoon of the butterfly, the human body.
Over the layers of time, they hold the story of the life that resides
within. The vessels remain as life moves on, leaving their stories
My work incorporates techniques such as pit-firing,
stains, oxides and slips that create a timeless and ancient-look.
Both ceramic and non-ceramic finishes have also been incorporated
to complete the story.
