Hello all, and welcome (back). I am proud to introduce my new creations to everyone interested. The focus as of late has been on my Keeps, which combine clay, wood and sometimes metal in a jar/box form. These works are titled Keeps for a few reasons. They are intended to keep things within them and to keep in your art collection for generations. One of the definitions of the word keep refers to a large tower in a castle that is a fortified refuge. I feel that this accurately captures the feeling I have for the work I produce. A special, secure, aesthetically pleasing presence in your modern castle.
