What am I thinking about?????

Ceramic sculpture and portraiture, in particular, are forms of a visual narration that I use to satisfy my urge for documenting what I see in human nature. Evocative of well-loved toys and obsolete artifacts, I use the implied history of these objects to encourage the viewer to disconnect from the present situation and conjure their own individual narratives from my sculptures.

Working with concepts that are personal and sometimes narcissistic perceptions of the gloomy side of life, dark humor is my buffer. Dry or irreverent, it is humor that mystifies the tragic.

Untitled (pope monkey)

This is a new sculpture that I'm working on.  It's still in the leather hard stage and I have quit a bit more surface work to finish before it goes in the kiln.  The working title is "The Pope Monkey".
