A tiny bird perches on this figure’s shoulder, symbolizing the inner voice , a small house to represent the memories of our life’s journey.
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. They have remained an inspiration. Examining Grecian relics gave me an appreciation for the weathered and texture patina of found objects. I strive to replicate on my own surfaces.
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.
