My current inventory is quite a bit larger than the 38 pieces I have displayed in the Gallery so if there is something you dont see and would like to inquire about about , please call or email me at the above contact information. ALSO please note that Scottsdale Art Fair has been cancelled and going forward no one is sure what will happen , so until further notice I will in all probability not be at Art Fairs . Please call if you are interested in someting you dont see on the web site. I am doing new work and firing kilns so there may be new work that isnt on my website although I will try to keep it updated. Thank you all for all your wonderfull support in the past and I hope we can still do things together in the future in these troubling times.
I design each piece in clay (high fire stoneware) , using handbuilding techniques of slab,drape and coil. The pieces are dried for several days,then fired to about 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. (This is called a bisque firing) After cooling the glazes are applied and whatever stains I require. The piece then gets placed into a high fire reduction kiln and fired to 2300 degrees. After 36-40 hours of cooling the sculpture is removed from the kiln and critiqued. If it passes, I then finish the piece with glass eyes,turquoise,leather,cactus spines or small feathers. In the late 90’s, I started working on small mammalian critters such as bats,armadillos and some times opossum. Some of my latest work include environmental life cycle pieces that are at risk or are endangered.
