warpfragMy life and work are intertwined. The concerns of my life are reflected in the themes, even the techniques of my work. I work principally in glass, clay and bronze. They all involve transformation by fire. A good deal of the work I have been engaged in over the last few years deals with metaphor based on ideas concerning balance, fragmentation and transformation: of the body, heart, mind, spirit, nature, language & culture. The work is meant to have the feel of the artifact: an emotional artifact made solid, a cultural artifact from some future/past, reconstructed or guessed at. Some parts are original, some new, others are assumed. These concerns inform much of my work either very deliberately or often in some subtle, even unintentional way.
