Secret Life of ...    Hand formed ceramic sculpture

My Secret Life of… series was created with the  reflection of the cycle of life, death, decay and rebirth.  Representational work mixing hand formed ceramics, raku postfire reduction, hand forged steel and copper, embellishments and glass.

Each piece in this series is a continuum of the last; as I hand form each piece in clay, I see and feel the direction it is headed. Currently, I am focusing on the surface of the "skin" of the tree; adding unexpected detail and embellishments  to create  the surreal and real juxtaposition  I strive for in my work.
