    About The Work

    I love how clay drapes unpredictably over everyday objects. Sensuous folds develop as the clay drapes over the sides and is pushed around by the shape of the draped object. The semi-soft medium envelopes the ready-made objects and slowly settles into the voids, creating an outline that requires study to understand its origin. The familiar and mundane become interesting. Objects that we rarely give a second glance become draped in mystery. With study, the form beneath the drape slowly reveals itself as details emerge and hidden crevices show signs of life. Drape is a nod to Duchamp's ready-mades but with added visual obscurity and interesting sculptural shapes created by draping the objects within. Once the item is draped, it's permanently entombed and preserved for future generations. Drape. Artifacts of our culture.
