All work is hand-built, utilizing the basic processes of pinch, coil and slab. There is limited mold use as in the pages for the wall-books or the heads from the Dreamer series. Surfaces are enhanced with the use of slips, under-glaze or room-temperature glazing. Texture is embossed in when plastic or carved when leather-hard. Most of the work is fired in electric kilns to cone four, unless I have an opportunity to fire atmospherically, and the piece calls for that surface. Glaze is used sparingly, usually to symbolize water and often glass is melted into components to also serve as an aqueous proxy. Found objects and mixed media are incorporated after firing, having provided a space or hole for attachment while still leather-hard. In addition to a variety of paints, gold-leaf, tool-dip and color pencil further flavor the final statement.
