The geometric series emerged in the early 1990s as an exploration of form and divided form. Assembled, the separate parts create a whole; divided, they can be arranged in varying and evocative relationships.
In some I have created at the center a sphere, a heart within the form, which can be seen as the connecting and energizing force.
These pieces are built from stoneware slabs; they are hollow rather than solid forms. They are low-fired, either in a sagger within my gas kiln or in a raku kiln. Surface color comes from various oxides, organic matter surrounding the piece, or splashes of glaze in the case of raku.
