"Seed" "Shadow" "Alone" "Marks" Early Work

The sculpture I have done in the past is figurative/narrative in nature. The form became the surface or the "canvas" on which I drew and then carved. Underglaze color was painted into the carved areas. Black underglaze was then rubbed on to the surface and into the carved lines. In 2005, my work changed.

The forms are slab, rather than coil built. The color has been independent of carved edges. The forms still incorporate the figure but in a more abstract way.

I have always considered the viewer and the ideas, experiences, and interpretation he/she brings to the work to be an important part of my work. Even when I am working out personal challenges and experiences, I find I am also attempting to give visual expression to shared or common concerns.
