CLAY BODIES

These clay forms refer to organs in the body.

 

The original vessels and containers used by early Man now form works that contain psychic longings and connections between universal elements. They are often thought of as reliquaries to be used on special occasions for rituals.
 

EYED

This 2012 installation was created during my series of eye surgeries intended to fix a macular hole, which can result in distorted vision. Each eye is made of glazed terra cotta and measures anywhere from two to nine inches in length.
