My ceramic sculptures celebrate the expressive and fluid qualities of clay.  For the last few years I have focussed on pieces that hang on the wall.  I found that by putting them on the wall, I could more easily see what is going on.

Lately I have been combining curved tubular forms with thin slabs that have been pushed and prodded into organic shapes.  I tend to work by assembling disparate elements in a somewhat random fashion until a relationship emerges and ultimately there is a feeling of necessity.  I regard my work as an eternal search for the elusive beauty that embraces awkwardness, the harmony within dissonance, a spacious visceral energy. 

My background includes studying drawing and sculpture at the New York Studio School in the late 1960s, and more recently, ceramics at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design.
