I am very excited to announce my show “Looking” at Practical Art in August!

Opening reception on First Friday, August 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. at 5070 N. Central Ave, PHX. Hope to see you there! If you can’t make it, the show will be open the whole month of August.

The works in “Looking” are ceramic wall pieces whose colors and compositions begin with cell phone pictures of built places, such as parking lots, street corners, and construction sites. Some pieces incorporate industrial elements like power and water infrastructure. I see these places as constituting the landscape, rather than an imposition on it.

My work in ceramics starts with a red clay body. I often shape or carve the slab while the clay is still wet. After an initial bisque firing, I apply multiple layers of glazes, underglazes, ceramic stains, and oxides.
