In The Window
.
May 2 - June 30, 2017

An important part of my work is simplicity, and
how nature combines color and texture. My
work examines the idea that a common
functional ceramic form is also a piece of
ceramic sculpture. The results are a wonderful
combination of the process of making and the
materials it comes from. I like each piece to
reveal its history of clay in the fire.

March 1 - April 29, 2017
My work ranges from functional to sculptural.  
Somehow the figure or suggestion thereof, find
their way in as well as images of my early
exposure to nature which imbues and imbeds
the forms.  People who work in clay speak of
the medium as "having memory", how it will
return to shapes formed, albeit even rips,
cracks, etc.   So too with people - I have only
to look down to see mother's feet; gaze into
the mirror to recognize father's face.  Some
work is stretched, fractured, textured,
accentuated with numerous lines and marks,
etc., creating tension that speaks to the known
and unknown.  Other work is burnished into
smoothness, inviting touch.
