People and life seem to be filled with incongruities – our American fascination with guns contrasting our desires for “total safety”, a need to hang onto “old”, but beloved heirlooms while surrounding ourselves with the latest, greatest gadgetry, our love of nature and our relentless efforts to trash it with our humanity. For me, clay is a very enjoyable, plastic and expressive medium providing a vehicle through which I can best bring sharp focus to the incongruities in my life. I do what I have to do. Hopefully others can enjoy the work as it reflects their own experience.
