Inspired by Greek relics, this figure expresses the joys of a life full of love.
For more than three decades, I have been recognized for archetypal figures. My love of these abstract figures took on a new life after a summer trip to Greece in my youth. I was taken by the way museums illuminated the preciousness of each fragment of sculpture by featuring them individually. After close examination these relics gave me an appreciation for the weathered and texture patina of found objects. I strive to replicate on my own surfaces.
They have since been a continued source of inspiration. I begin by throwing the base of stoneware clay, on a potter's wheel and finish the form by hand-building. Pieces are finished with glazes I make myself. Each piece is unique.
