These gnarled and twisted forms which are made by twirling, tearing and spiraling chunks of clay are conceived as objects for contemplation. Their abstract ambiguity allows each viewer to bring forth what they believe to be the imagery.

Raku firing is how I finish much of the work. Inherent in this process is the use of chance which matches how I construct the forms; at times the process is controlled, yet I allow for the unexpected. In the end it all fits with the fragile, unpredictable and ephemeral qualities of nature.
