porcelain, glaze, paint, glass beads, 2010. This was the first ceramic head I made in this series. It was inspired by the distant trees out my back window. My minds eye saw a pair of cheeks in their perfect round shape and capillary like branches.
earthenware, glaze, glass. This piece is a little scary I think. The teeth are made of tiny glass beads.
Made of stoneware clay, blue ink, paint, and glaze. When I made this piece originally, I had a flower coming out of the hole in the top of the head - what I failed to realize was that I had made the flower out of a lower temperature clay than the rest of the head.- My rose melted, but I rather like the result, don’t you?
porcelain, glaze, paint, 2010. Cap is inspired by my friend and neighbor Denise. Thanks Denise for your style.
porcelain, glaze, paint, found object, 2010. Everyone seems to recognize this as Kevin. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. This smoker’s cap is made from a remnant of my dog’s rubber ball - it’s belly button I suppose you would call it- I couldn’t just throw it away.
