My ceramic sculptures range in size from smaller narratives to large statues. Some are stand-alone figures and others are more complex constructions that depict dream-like, surreal events. Inspired by music, dreams and childhood memories the originality of each sculpture is a reflection of my improvisational approach. The forms emerge from a swift process of modeling, allowing the natural qualities of the material to guide the composition.
