I see much of my work as a comment on contemporary culture. Other pieces are just for fun, most are representational, but some are abstract. Whether I build forms from slabs, by coiling, or by making a slip mold; whether I finish them with glazes, underglazes, stains or acrylic paints - it is the finished piece as a statement of the human condition or an interesting thought-provoking piece of art that concerns me more than the ceramic technique.
I enjoy the tactile experience of building with clay. It allows me to make a serious statement in an informal and lively format. Clay can be worked relatively quickly and yet can survive centuries. I like the wide variety of surface effects achievable and the risks and surprises involved in firing ceramics. I feel a challenge to bring ceramic sculpture from a craft status into a recognized fine art medium.
