DARK GARDEN, an installation of my ceramic sculpture

January - December 2016

Erie Art Museum, 411 State Street, Erie, PA....

My concern for the natural environment influences my sculpture, where I explore various aspects of the problem "man versus nature" as well as fragility, vulnerability, and life versus decay.  I use plant forms, seed pods, leaves, and flowers as a source for imagery.  Many of the sculptures have impressions of trash in the clay.  I consider littering to be the "canary in the coal mine," portraying attitudes toward pollution.  Often actual rusted rebar metal becomes a part of my sculptural plants’ structure.  The rebar also facilitates building clay forms that can rise higher into space in a way unusual for traditional heavy clay sculpture.  I like to test the borders of response from the viewer and what they want to see: desirable versus undesirable in a way that parallels our acceptance or denial of environmental issues.

Recent Workshop:

June 1 and 15 , 2015, 6 - 8:30 PM

Rockwell Museum, 111 Cedar Street, Corning, NY

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My teaching philosophy involves helping people feel inspired and connected to their creative imaginations.  I encourage them in a non-judgmental way, try to expose them to as many influences as possible, help them with specific techniques that apply to their ideas, and emphasize that mistakes can be very productive. 

I teach occasional one or two day workshops from my Boston studio.  Each has a different theme or project.  I also teach workshops outside my studio at various places such as art centers, clay studios, or schools.  These usually are more related to my personal work, with discussion of how I follow a path of ideas, how my personal philosophy and motivations have evolved over many years of working in clay, demonstrations of techniques I use in my own work, and a PowerPoint presentation showing work by other artists who approach the subject of nature in a different way than I do.

Please contact me if you are interested in taking a workshop, or if you have a venue where I could present a workshop.
