At one point I was crippled by the thought of redoing what has been done. It seems like someone somewhere is doing almost exactly what you are. When I made the ceramic underwear I suddenly found other artists making ceramic underwear, one became a friend across the wor...

This series is gaining momentum. I've been researching the history of ceramics and finding deeper meaning. I've thought a lot about typical items found in our homes: objects that were trendy or must haves, showed elevated status or maintaining the status quo, mundane o...
