Reliefs and Sculptures

My sculpture includes reliefs in plaster and
fabric, and mixed media assemblages, and
some ceramics and stone sculpture (mostly
sold).  I have always been fascinated by
relief art, especially Assyrian, Greek, and
Mayan reliefs.  It is the physicality, potential
for texture, and changing patterns of light
and shade that intrigue me.  I work primarily
in flat media, but there is a sculptural
quality to most of my two-dimensional art.


Please visit my GALLERY to see my
work in flat media.

Arabesque Series (to right)

These small low-relief wall plaques
are made of plaster, poured into
temporary molds created by pressing
found objects into oil-based modeling
clay. The plaster is then impregnated
with linseed oil, which is absorbed to a
depth of about 1/8 inch, making a very
strong surface. The castings are then
painted with many layers of oil paint,
rubbed, brushed, and rolled onto the
textured surface. The frames are
custom-made.

Heliotrope (to right)

This green soapstone
sculpture was designed
to take advantage of a
narrow stone with a
flat natural surface on
the back. The veins and
inclusions in the stone
give the sculpture an
interesting character.

This pink alabaster
sculpture doubles
as a vase, or even a
candle- or incense-
holder if you wish.
Created after my
most recent trip to
Mexico, the face
reminds me of the
famous Mexican
sacrificial god,
Chac-Mool.

(to right)

This wall-hanging
relief sculpture began
with a plaster-and-
fabric cast made from
the face of a friend of
mine. The cast was
then painted and
decorated, and fastened
to a metal screen, along
with additional items.



           Contemporary wall sculpture              Mayan Heads Bookends (to right)

The mold for these bookends was the clay
model I made for the face of the earlier
sculpture, Heliotrope. I made a plaster cast
from that model and slipcast nine sets of
these bookends. Each set was hand-finished
and glazed differently in several firings.
Each pair is therefore a unique, functional,
ceramic sculpture.

The bookends are weighted with lead, sand,
and plaster, and are heavy enough to
support even the largest books.
