"I've described myself as 'a maker of things' and this journey with clay is a continuation of my desire to make things."

This piece is reminiscent of the 1970's. The music is "Yesterday" and "Mr. Bojangles". The poem is an e.e. cummings poem and the eight cent LOVE stamp has a 1973 postmark.


Artist Statement

While working with the artist, Sylvia Hyman, I became intrigued with trompe l'oeil sculpture. I became fascinated with the idea of telling stories through clay. I love the simplicity and beauty of everyday objects: boxes, bottles, books, letters, trinkets. To create them in clay and arrange them in a narrative fashion delights me. I love the attention to detail; to shapes, textures and colors. It is both challenging and rewarding to see a piece come together and to know that I've succeeded in finding a story within the commonplace.
