"I am building these sculptures for an ongoing project. It is an imaginary archeological dig that
questions accepted mythology and beliefs. The figures “discovered” in DIG are made of clay, one of the
materials that helps place epochs in time. The style is sometimes grotesque, sometimes whimsical. The pieces
are colored with pulverized minerals, underglazes with flashes of bright lusters. My work often has a charred,
recently ancient, unearthed quality. There are no heaps of dirt; the pieces have been cleaned for viewing."
