These shapes explore my interest in the relationship of objects and their supports. The shelves are as important as what they hold. They are hard geometric shapes softened by the hand and the firing process. The objects on the shelves seem to be growing or changing or about to move or float away. The shelves want to hold the objects, but I’m not sure the objects want to be held. Oh, sure they do. Maybe the shelves want more for themselves. No, they are content.

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.
