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”. During the past few years I've made ceramic reproductions of nature, especially orchids. Lately I've been making small figures engaged in various activities and dragon pitchers that gurgle when they pour. 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.
