This is the last piece Sylvia and I were working on before she passed. It was her idea to make a piece gathering together the left over components from the studio, m aking a crate to house them and titling the piece "Shards and Discards". The crate had just been bisque fired. I finished it to her design and acquired it.

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.
