Statement

 

Much of my work begins as a stream of creative conscious exploring variations of a theme, pattern, or idea that is brought forth with a base in fired clay and frequently augmented with found pieces of metal.

 

I produced a series in the beginning of 2017 called Ancient Cities; stacks of tiles framed in metal Bourbon barrel stays. I also began work on another series called Linear Lives; abstract humanistic forms on vertical metal rods. It was the combination of these works that finally jogged a memory and gave me insight into some of my creations and their Muse.

 

When I was 7-10 years old my father was in charge of auditing the military bases throughout the Southwest. My parents chose to take us with them in a motorhome    during the summer months. We were introduced to the cultures and history of the       indigenous people that lived through these areas. We were also exposed to the         incredible beauty of the environment. I realized that my work was a reflection of much of what I had seen and my interpretation of those memories.

 

 

My reflections on that time and place are what drew me to this medium and my technique of slow firing clay and oxides at lower temperatures, which leaves the impression of man made rocks. I think of my work in terms of man and nature coming together, leaving their imprint on one another.
