I have always been passionate about animals. Every animal has its own unique movements, expressions, and personality. My goal is to capture and highlight these traits. Each sculpture is individually hand-built in stoneware. I use various types of firings, including raku, smoke, and saggar. There is always the element of surprise when firing, because the flame and smoke cannot be completely controlled. Just as animals have their own personalities, these firing processes add unique characteristics to the sculptures.
10% of the sales from this show will be donated to the Franklin Park Zoo, MA.
Thankfully there are heroic people working for animal conservation. This exhibit is about endangered animals in Africa: a tribute to their magnificence and a hope for their future. We share this earth with these magnificent creatures that deserve our protection.
