"...when held in hand these sensual and organic shapes have a familiar tactile quality."

1/3

Art is universal; it speaks a language familiar to everything and everyone.  Desire, ultimately is less about what we think, and more about how it makes us feel.  The complexity involved in our ability to make critical choice defines us uniquely, when we choose to surround ourselves with those things that make us smile uncontrollably. 

 

I manipulate clay to create sculptured forms for more than visual stimulation, when held in hand these sensual and organic shapes have a familiar tactile quality each of us subconsciously recognize.

 

I use less conventional techniques of decorating my work; most are wood or pit fired.  These processes lend themselves to somewhat unpredictable variations and the occasional unexceptional aesthetic. 

 

Art isn’t always about the feel good delight.  But, it is just the type I aspire to originate.
