This is my collectable “Vegetable Series” which combines a love of nature with intricate decoration,

a whimsical sense of form and an enjoyment of function.  The pieces are sophisticated and radiate a liveliness in layers of patterns influenced by historical and cultural decoration.  Oriental, Egyptian, Southwestern and contemporary American references provide overlapping inspiration. 

 

At the same time the forms are filled with a whimsical sensibility that delights in their natural references of use and enjoyment. The tension between organic for and painterly surface acts to engage the viewer in a dialogue of form and surface. The work has gained tremendous appeal in its unique opulent design, unusual organic forms, and playful function.
