Cold winter days help drive me to the studio. Thanks to my trusty wood stove, indoor conditions are pleasant even when the wind and blowing snow are howling outdoors…
A variety of new sculptures are completed or in the works (several pieces will be unveiled at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Friday, 20 March 2015 — further details to follow).

My latest sculpture, Common Ground, is a hand-built ceramic piece (385mm x 220mm x 360mm, base 330mm x 207mm x 105mm) with a silver cold finish and parts of an antique meat grinder, mounted on a stained wooden base/bed.

Ready to go on display at the Winnipeg Art Gallery Shop, Unabashedly Amorous is my latest completed sculpture. 540mm high x 330mm diameter, the piece is a ceramic sculpture (fired with glazes and stains, completed with cold finishes) on a polychromed, turned wooden base.
There’s a time to be shy about love… and there’s a time to wrap yourself in its warm embrace.
The vernissage for ‘Put the Art in Heart: WAVE at the WAG’ is on Wednesday, 9 April, 18:00 to 21:00. See you there?

My latest piece, No Regrets, is on display at the Cre8ery in Winnipeg as a part of the annual ‘For the Love of Craft‘ exhibit of the Manitoba Craft Council (open until 18 February). This hand-built ceramic sculptural piece (270mm x 490mm) is finished with fired glaze and stains, and includes assemblage elements — wooden Scrabble tiles, bicycle spokes, and a turned wooden base.

My latest commission, Awaiting Serendipity, was completed and delivered just in time for Christmas. A hand-built ceramic sculptural piece (345mm x 180mm x 435mm) it’s glazed in antique silver and includes an old hand drill, mounted on a wooden base.
In case you’re not an early riser, live outside of southern Manitoba, or, like me, you don’t own a television, here’s a link to the interview that CityTV did with me on 23 August 2013.
24 July 2013
Jack… Master of None is my latest figurative sculptural piece, showing at the Pulse Gallery (the Forks) Winnipeg as of tomorrow. Jack is quintessentially Canadian — a “type eh” personality who takes himself somewhat lightly. Hand-built fired clay figure/assemblage with turned wooden elements, shoe stretchers, and knife-blade propeller; oxide stains and cold finishes. 250mm diameter x 500mm height
Please come for a visit (10:00 to 18:00 on Saturday and Sunday)!
