Welcome to the Sculpture Gallery

Terra cotta
The feel of clay is magical.  It’s almost like kneading bread.

Painted patinas are applied to the fired sculptures and allow
for an endless variety of finishes; from matt to high-gloss,
from verdigris green to bronze, and anything in-between.

The best part... the patina process allows me
to pull out my paintbrushes again!

Alabaster
In 2010, I started carving Alabaster.  Working in stone is
a new challenge.  The stone itself is beautiful.  
If I can add even a little to that beauty, I am happy.

Bases
For bases I often use rough granite pieces.
I have a fondness for these stones because they remind me
of the granite boulders that I climbed on as a child.
