"Anomalies" is an exhibition of pots and paintings. It will be on view at the Linfield Art Gallery from Jan 3 to Jan 27, 2012

The pots have anomalous creatures created with gestural emphasis to accentuate their presence. The pots and paintings express my attempt to explore the nature of play in making things authentically and creatively.

Bones of Clay

With clay slip and acrylic medium I established the background by pouring and manipulating the grid-like background.
I intended to introduce color, but was compelled to simply lay the figure out in charcoal with a simple drawing.
