Useless Rule

clay, glaze, 2014, dimensions vary

Currently, my works talk about signals and understanding, but I want to show signals through my own “signs” that people are not able to understand easily. It is also my way of introducing a question to the audience. For me, this process allows communication between myself and the audience to discuss recent social issues that I am concerned about. Other significant elements in my works are material and process, specifically, clay and firing. Fired and glazed clay adds permanent value because of the eternalness of the material in an unchangeable form.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
