My work is hand-thrown and hand-built porcelain. Each piece is glazed and high-fired in a gas kiln.
I'm a ceramic artist who's focus is on hand building. My glazes are my own design. Lately, I've been experiencing with mixing other mediums into my ceramic sculptures; like steel and concrete.
One of a kind art vessels, thrown and altered with firing techniques that include wood firing and horse hair raku.
I individually wheel throw each piece of stoneware clay and manipulate while still damp. After bisque firing, the work is either gas or electric fired to cone 10 with crystalline glazes
Posters are designed from my plein air (oil) and graphite/marker studies designed in the Federal Arts Project tradition, then redrawn as digital art. Output from computer are digital prints/giclees.
Drawing and Printmaking
I use watercolor in order to create a stunning effect that accentuates my drawings, followed by between 50-70 hours of small intricate, hidden, or inspired designs to complete my artwork.
My pieces are made of 85% handcast abaca paper. The surface is then covered with joint compound or cement, then copper leafed. Some pieces are painted with bees wax and pigment, called encaustic.
Fiber mixture from animal skin & bird feathers. Final details consist of other animal skins & beads.
Completely made from raw materials. I combine multi layer sandblasting-over 200 designs, hand worked metal-each bead and texture created individually, hand painting, hand cut bevels, glass & mirror.
