Jury Work For submission

My ceramic and bronze clay work is inspried by Celtic, Norse, and Medieval themes. I draw my inspiration from architecture, illuminated manuscripts, monuments, and weapons of those cultures and times. My ceramics work is all wheel thrown or hand-built stoneware fired in a reduction environment (gas kiln). I work mainly in clay, with several lines of tableware, some sculptural vases. I produce a few bronze and mixed media peices as well. The bronze work is all made by me in the studio from precious metal bronze clay.

For the bronze pieces, I draw inspriation from a variety sources and am primarily interested in transferring patterns to metal. The bronze work is all made by me using a combination of traditional metalsmithing techniques combined with precious metal bronze clay.
