BRIEF STATEMENT

I keep technique and materials as simple as possible and focus my attention on content and aesthetics. My work comes directly from my personal life experiences and world events. I use subject matter as symbols to express a variety of ideas or concepts.

I enjoy the use of color and often use humor in my work. My clay sculptures are hand built in a vitreous earthenware, basically using the coil method of construction. I use commercial engobes and a clear glaze to obtain either a matte or a shiny surface. I am interested, for the most part, in making my objects slightly larger than life size. The overall scale of my work relates directly to the size of the objects I am depicting.
