Mica clay from Taos, 2014, (from left to right) 10.5"w x 6"h x 10.5"d; 7"w x 6.5"h x 7"d; 11"w x 3"h x 11"d

This body of work is created to learn and understand the medium of clay and to gain an understanding of local customs. New Mexico has an enduring heritage of making pottery; to better understand and learn local traditions, I have decided to acquire the knowledge through the practice of pot making. I prefer to work with clay because I feel a strong connection to the earth. Clay gives me a more intimate and personal experience with the artwork. This intimate feeling comes from the notion that clay is the most primitive and basic medium that has been used since the beginning of time.

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.
