My recent ceramic work is intended to have an emotional impact. Whether it is positive or negative, I want to make it memorable. Many of my pieces are tongue-in-cheek and I am a great fan of the ability of cartoonists to capture a perfectly summed up moment. My work attempts to require little or no explanation. I use sculpture bodied stoneware; utilizing stains, glazes, acrylics and epoxy. Many of my pieces also incorporate plants as part of the overall effect. I enjoy creating characters that can be reinvented each time they are planted.
