With regard to the ongoing series Genesis (Little Victories), I continually create numerous small-scale ceramic objects in my studio practice. These small pieces not only inform my larger-scale ceramic works, they also allow me the ability to enjoy “little victories” in the studio. There are all too often failures in a studio practice, so this exercise realigns that balance. At the core, these playful objects explore the notions of unfiltered play in the studio and the process that comes along with clay as a material.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
