Early Work

My early work was a continuation of my involvement with the ancient process of wood firing. Since 1994, I began to concentrate on using this process in an attempt to make objects that resonate with age, both geologic and human. I have built objects from our mechanized, industrial world which are obvious and recognizable to the viewer.. The construction and firing of these objects transform them into contemporary artifacts, which ties geologic and human history to our contemporary condition. They also serve as specific commentary on the genre of wood firing.
