About the Artist

My process of translating my ideas from thought to form usually goes through a certain evolution. An inspiration or idea is made into a small clay "sketch" called a maquette. Upon reflection, I sometimes make changes to the form and it evolves with my thoughts and feelings. When I feel the small clay sketch successfully conveys my idea, I start a larger scale model of the piece. I make a larger wire frame, called an armature, on which I press clay around the wire while playing with the shape, form, texture, and line. I refine these qualities with both tools and my hands until I reach a point where I feel the sculpture is the most expressive. It is then the the "lost wax" process is followed. This is a system that takes the clay form through a series of steps resulting in a bronze casting. The final step in the creative process is realized with the application of the patina. Heat applied acids, chemicals and pigments are applied to the surface of the bronze creating colors and textures that compliment the sculpture as a whole. It is this quality of color, shape, form, and texture that breathes life into the original inspiration conveying it in tactile form.
