Within the structure of the human form, my sculpture addresses concepts of intent, purpose, and the pursuit of Truth (trying to figure out how things really are).
My mixed media figures begin with hand building techniques in stoneware clay. I layer the surface with terra sigillata, slips, underglaze, stains, oxides, glazes, underglaze pencils, and decals - firing each piece three to five times. the work is mostly in pieces after the final firing and is assembled with wood, metal, fiber and found objects.
There is the visual image, but also the deeper meaning that involves the complexities and contradictions of the world we live in. I am intrigued by what we think, do, and say, by who we are and how we live - primarily at the soul level.
