It has been a long journey to move, set up a new studio....and find out who I am here in this new place. After much experimentation, I have found a surface for my work that pleases me. I use the dark oxides as an undercoat and apply raw clay after firing. I also find that I must include FEET! why I don't know...ask the muse.

After being away from my work for these past months (and moving) I not sure who the sculptor is right now. It is said that art is a reflection of the location of the artist. If that is true, much has changed and I go searching every time I get my hands on clay lately. The face is where the eye goes, so it's where I experience the most drama...what is this sculpture about?

It's been quite a while since I had my studio adjoining my house. This new studio came with much hassle. I even had to tear down work tables and shelves to rebuild when the city told the electrician that the kiln had to move 10 feet before they would give him a permit. The rebuild was better than my first try and now everything is operational. The vent got connected last night...but the kiln isn't full yet. I've forgotten how much work I can stuff in there.
