Whether inspired by marine mollusks or city architecture, my abstract totems and wallscapes move- twisting, rolling and flowing in space.
These organic forms are made from slab-constructed extruded coils of stoneware clay, which have been draped over molds. The molds are often constructed with recycled materials like Styrofoam, plastic lids and tennis balls.
The glazed surfaces reflect the colors, textures and patterns found in nature and in man-made forms.
These 3-D organic sculptures and wall reliefs represent my positive perspective on life. Viewers have an opportunity to derive their own personal interpretation – whether my art evokes images that are figurative, natural or non-objective.
