ABOUT

All my clay work for over 40 years, has been about exploring and expressing ideas in clay. Delight and whimsey are my invitations into a serious conversation or a powerfully simple little story; both can exist at the same time, in the same piece. The idea is to Connect. Connect to the figures within a piece and to the viewer. Maybe it will light up their own story and imagination. I have worked in red, brown, black and several qualities of white porcelain clays, black being for sure the wildest and messiest so please stay on your own side of the table. All my figures, gatherings or solos, connect to each other and me. Simplicity of form allows the possibility of the viewer to fill in the blanks, the unspoken story. From the big LifeBoats to octopuses, rabbits and imaginary figures, they all express some connection to me before they are set to dry. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally since 1984.
