Title: Aspen Trees: Fall and Winter

Size: 9.5″h x 19″w x 1″d

Price:  $ 400

Description: White stoneware.  Hand built using soft slab, carved.  Surface decoration achieved using underglazes, wax resist, glaze washes and glazes.  Fired to cone 6.

Statement: These pieces were inspired by the Aspen trees growing at our cabin near Chama.  I tried to capture the beauty of the entire tree, from the unique trunk to the spectacular leaves, some shimmering yellow-gold, some pinkish-red.  Surprisingly, they are equally beautiful in the winter, blending in yet standing out in contrast to the snowy landscape.

My intention is to evoke human connection and empathy.

Statement: This piece was inspired by metal gear at its center.  It was a found object & reminded me of the decline of the industrial midwest, where I lived.  Abandoned factories littered with rusting equipment were everywhere while that part of the country struggled to redefine itself. The raven, an image I often use, is here in its guise of scavenger, attracted by the glint of something shiny, maybe hope.

I alternated between decorative and functional work for many years. After retiring from the functional dinnerware endeavor, I started doing things that just felt right. Having fun in the studio is now what it is all about for me.

Title: impression 2 

Size: 2.5 x 9 x 3 “

Price:  $ 250

Description: Fiber clay, mold formed and hand shaped, terra sigillata, raku fired, waxed.

Statement: These forms came about intuitively; the hands molded what initially came out of a mold. Surface treatment with terra sigillata and raku firing produce the color variations, never predictable, and bring out the texture of marks from the mold and hand work in the shaping. These are from a group of 8 pieces. Natural forms intrigue me, the husk, shell, pod, gourd, in their twisting and turning as they change shape over time; first young then mature and then a mere skin, always transitioning through time into another form. The organic forms that inspired these impressions tend to be symmetrical. Impressions are not symmetrical although they seek balance. They will sit on a surface in different positions revealing the other side. They hold things in and free them from the enclosed space through openings.

Title: Border Remnant

Size: 23″h x 28″w x 7.5″d

Price:  $2,800

Description: Clay and steel

Statement: In my current work, clay and steel function in unison, creating an abstract narrative about walls and boundaries.  Clay, when fired, is impermeable to time and the elements. Steel, by its nature, gradually disintegrates, leaving only a trace. Paradoxically, we are left with both a temporary and lasting record on the landscape and in our collective memory.

Statement: I primarily create nonfunctional sculptural work. Much of it relates to the human form or animal imagery. I have become best known for my mixed media raku or stoneware horses. Heavily influenced by archetypes and dream work, they incorporate symbolic and other meaningful elements as mane and tail and within the body of the piece.

Price:  $4,000

Description: method

Statement: The intention of my art is not to tell story, but more a reflection of my interaction with the visual world, and the deep emotional connection I have to it. I want to create objects that enhance the space around them, evoking an emotional response. Pattern and form are rhythm, palette is harmony, lines are lyrical. I’m striving to make visual poetry.

Description: Glazed Stoneware

Statement: Living in the New Mexican desert, on the edge of the middle of nowhere, I am immersed in nature’s beauty and small town life.  It is the sunlight, the wind, the people and plants and animals of this place that I bathe in.   Using hybrid forms of humans and nature is my framework for positing what seems to need more of our attention and what may nurture us in the long run.
