All that has occurred under the surface, during the dream and long ago influences my work. I call this "private play" my PST, Personal Shadowy Tale. I am not attempting to convey a message, just a feeling. The figures are at once vulnerable, sweet and frightening. I am particularly interested in their relationship to each other. When a figure is alone it calls out to be tenderly picked up. If in a group, each has an obvious attachment to the other.
Each ceramic piece is hand built using pinched, coiled and slab techniques. I use dark brown stoneware clay with commercial underglazes layered on top. The pieces are single fired in an electric kiln to cone 4. All are finished with a coat of Butchers Wax. All fabric is hand sewn. Some pieces incorporate found objects.
The paintings are acrylic paint, pencil on vinyl adhered to mylar.
