About my sculptures

For several years I created an ongoing series inspired by the imagery of birds.  While other figurative pieces make their way into my clay play from time to time, I keep coming back to these flights of fancy pieces.  Perhaps it is their whimsical nature that most speaks to me. It is quite a needed respite from my tendency toward seriousness.  Many of these pieces are formed around a glass sphere which contain bits of semi-precious stones that rattle when shaken.  Some even have windows through which these stones can be seen.  The stones symbolize the  nature of our precious inner voice that stirs when engaged.   The windows symbolize our ability to look within for the riches to be found there.
