Happy autumn, Everyone!


23 September 2018

Well, it’s been a while, but I am back in the studio (after a year of Sabbatical). It feels good!

My studio is sporting a new roof, and I am putting up the storm windows in preparation for what they say will be a cold winter. Wood has been stacked for the stove, and my mind is a clutter of ideas… waiting to be “realized” as figurative sculptures. I am feeling the need for some new “studio buddies,” so let the work begin!

I’m getting back into the feel of clay by shaping a new batch of “Readers,” as most of the previous iterations were adopted by WAVE tour visitors during the summer, and there are folks who want some prior to Christmas. 

Best wishes!


Rejoice, rejoice…

When Pigs Fly




1 September 2016

When Pigs Fly is a new sculptural commission I have just completed. Five hand-built winged pigs (in a burnished metallic-silver cold finish) erupt upwards from a tiered, turned wooden base with metal findings. Each pig featues a “piggy-bank” coin slot on its back. Interpretation is open to the viewer…

‘Slow and steady’ has its well-earned place, but without the motivation to start, you’re not even in the race.”

Work in progress…

Winter weather provides a great motivation to work in the comfort of my wood-heated studio… half a dozen sculptures underway or completed since New Year’s day!

To what end?

To what end? This hand-built clay sculpture incorporates antique iron callipers on a turned wooden base with bronze metal details.

You go, Girl!”
