After early work in clay and plaster, I have focused mostly on stone. While the shape of the original stone will often dictate possibilities, the end product will always be modified during the process. More often than not, I don’t know what my end result will be until the stone tells me what’s possible. One nice thing about beginning a piece of stone is that you can’t make a mistake if you don’t know what you’re doing. With clay and plaster, one typically has more control over the end product, because I’m adding material as I go along. The decisions come earlier than with stone. I’ve enjoyed both additive and subtractive processes; they’re different and the variety creates its own challenges and problems to be solved. My work is both figural and abstract, at times whimsical, with some imagery derived from my background in biology. Speaking of whimsy, I’ve been making pieces out of pine cones, which is what I’ll be showing at NOS this year.
