ceramics; living art: geckos
I have been hand-building ceramics at Mudflat since 2004 and enjoy making small sculptures and “visual humor” pieces as well as some functional items. I've recently become more interested in making ceramic reproductions of nature, especially orchids. For 13 years I also engaged in creating "living art” —developing beautiful colors and patterns in geckos through selective breeding. Sadly, due to a contagious (not to humans) parasite, my breeding days are over, but I still maintain quite a number of impressive specimens from all over the world that thrive in their natural habitats within my home. The cages also contain a number of my ceramic pieces which serve as both functional items and habitat enhancements.
