Please join me for a pop-up art show at the home of Stephanie Kirby and Nick Cooksey on July 16th to view my new series ‘Beauty in Decay’. Sumptuous, light appetizers to be provided by Worobel Foods. Wine provided by award-winning vintners Welcome Road Winery. A good time is promised so stop by for some nibbles and libations and to chat about the new work.

I strive to bring the same kind of earthy complexity the great potters and ceramicists achieve in their work. The chemistry producing natural imperfections in a fiery kiln is something I’m trying to replicate in a cold, one dimensional process. I apply acids, scratch and sand and generally do all I can to give the work depth and emotion. These surfaces convey a natural aging, a beautiful decay, if you will, taking on the essence of stone, water…history. Behind it all is a love for materials, natural processes and arrangement. Making a painting is an exciting thing to do. I hope that comes across in the work.
