I sculpt, with a skewed eye, large scale common objects in clay and use the firing process of raku. The raku I do is an Americanized version of the sixteenth-century Japanese ceramic process. The results are never predictable, always imperfect and exciting.
Architecture at U.C. Berkeley, Interior Architecture at CCAC, and ceramics at College of Marin comprise my formal educational background. Life in New Mexico and bay area funk artists are my informal inspirations. Nods to the following: Anne Pete Carrington, Karen Shapiro, Robert Arneson, William Wiley, Dave Hickey, Alexander Calder, Richard Shaw, to name a but a few.
