Since arriving at the Craft Center in 1994 my work has evolved back to the
vessel. Initially I created the Factory Icon
series, briefly reviving the "window" imagery from my work at U-Mass,
as seen on the Early Work
I soon moved away from the pictorial narratives and turned to vessel
interpreting Industrial Revolution masonry architecture, as in the Industrial Ruin Vessel
This work grew out of the Industrial Shard series, as seen on the
Early Work page.
In the Vessel
Shrine series seen on the right, I built masonry "shrines" paying tribute to
historic industrial objects or subjects. These covered
bottle or jar forms are glazed on the inside, and can be lifted off their
faux-granite bases. They all incorporate found industrial objects -
a small cast iron anvil, a large bolt, and small cast iron wheels.
