This series of works by the artist consists of substantial, approximately circular, 2 ft plus in diameter works in clay. Heavily textured with rich glaze combinations poured over them, these works may seem to suggest landscapes, seascapes, deep space or other inferences to the viewer. In fact, to the artist, these works are non-objective explorations of color, form and surface.
