Artist's Statement

I have been hand-building ceramics at Mudflat since 2004 and enjoy making functional items (usually with a humorous twist), small sculptures and “visual humor”. 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.
