Hello and welcome! The following are images of some of my sculptures and glass work.  I will do my best to keep this page updated to add images of new work. Each piece is a signed, original, one-of-a-kind sculpture (except as noted for one or two which are cast in bronze as limited editions). I will be glad to provide a Certificate of Authenticity with each purchase. Many of the sculptures shown can be more fully appreciated from close-up views of details and pictures made from other angles ... I will be happy to send you more information and additional images of any work that you are interested in.

You can click on any image to see an enlargement of it.

This sculpture is called Night Mare. Not that she is actually scary, but the glaze reminded me of a nighttime sky. It is a blend of dark brown, blue, and a bit of purple - with tiny yellowish spots scattered like stars. Her bridle rein  is loose and hangs to the floor, symbolizing to me freedom from being controlled by others. 

Dimensions: 23"x7"x7"   Material: ceramic and chain    Price:  Sold





This sculpture was created using the same sculpting technique as the pieces shown below, but the character of the piece is very different. The figure represents the evolution of humans from earlier primates through modern man. The lower part of the body is chimp-like, obviously; the middle portion shows a human holding an armload of items that represent humans' inventions through time (a book (printing), an airplane, a medical staff, and the like). Finally the head is robotic-appearing, and the back of the head shows a computer board and wires where the brain would normally be found.

I think the sculpture is very funny, while still communicating a serious message. 

Height: 16."     Price: $400.








Here are two more images from the series of abstracted figures that I mentioned earlier. The one on the left has a gray and green finish that looks like stone or maybe weathered bronze. The lower one is black with a red "patina" on it.

I view all the pieces in this series as representing a person's struggle with how to deal with a serious problem in his/her life. The title of the series says it all:  "Is it Better to Remember of to Forget?" Everyone has come up against difficult situations and personal losses in life. What is the best way to deal with them over time ... to forget about them or to continue to remember and struggle with them?

These two pieces both have a stylized snake that extends up the figure's spine and onto his/her head - symbolizing the persistence of memory in our lives. Contact me if you would like to see additional views. Height 16"   Price $400.

 I have entitled this sculpture "Red and Black like Jazz." It is made from terra cotta clay, obviously, with a random design in a black glaze called antique pewter. I like the dramatic contrast between the two colors as well as the fact that one is glossy and the other has a satin- finish created by waxing the red clay. The figure's body language and facial expression suggests that she is deep in thought about something, but she's not saying what it is!

It stands about 22" tall and is priced at $400.



I must have been in a fishy mood lately, because I have created three new fish-themed sculptures. One of them is already sold, so you will have to look in my "Gallery" blog to see it. The other two are shown here. The one to the left is of three angel fish or zebra fish (I'm not really trying to create authentic fish ... I'm just going for the humorous and decorative here.) Anyway, I think this trio has a lot of character. Each fish is fully 3-dimensional and rests on its own post. In fact, you can swivel them around slightly to change their orientation if you wish. Created of white earthenware and a dark pewter (almost black) glaze. The eyes are painted in with underglaze. Sold.
Ariel - a slightly abstracted female figure - head back, hair blowing out. Bronze casting in a limited edition of five. Contact me and I will send you additional views of her.

Medium: bronze, lost wax process
Dimensions: about 22" tall
Price: $1300
Blue Adluh - an abstract representation of the Adluh Flour buildings, an iconic landmark in downtown Columbia, SC. They aren't blue in real life ... I just like the rhyming title.

Medium: earthenware ceramic on walnut base
Dimensions: the base is about 16" wide
Sold.

Lifelines - a series of portraits of elderly men and women, each poignant in its expression and meaning. The series was inspired by personal events in my own life and provided a way for me to work through some intense emotions.

Medium: earthenware ceramic. Sold.
Arctic Patrol - in honor of one of my favorite creatures, the polar bear. I do worry about their future, though, given the ongoing degradation of their specialized habitat.


Medium: earthenware
Dimensions: figure about 9" long
Sold.
