Stoneware, Reduction Fired to Cone 10 The content of my work regularly involves social commentary. I use a combination of humor, realism, current issues and facetiousness to create pieces about the experiences and struggles with environmental issues, pollution, climate change, class extinction, and the callousness of human beings. My work spotlights life’s ephemerality and the need for conservation, especially the diminishing numbers of endangered species. I build the figures in my work from a solid piece of clay. When the clay is leather hard the figure is cut apart, hollowed, then carefully put back together before the details are added.
