The "Gulf War Pieta" sculpture was created during the 1990-91 Gulf War. The head of George H. W. Bush is represented on the lower left of the sculpture and that of Saddam Hussein on the lower right in front of the oil barrels. Grenades, guns, gas masks, tanks and the stealth bomber are piled with the bodies of the Iraqui people and American and Allied Forces soldiers who lost their lives in the conflict.
The body of a U.S. soldier is cradled in the arms of his mother and is covered with the American flag. I dedicated this artwork to the mothers who lost their sons and daughters in this so called "successful war."
Gulf War Pieta can be purchased for $1,750.
Flasher of Fortune (back) 34x18x12"
Flasher of Fortune (front) 34x18x12"
"Flasher of Fortune" is built of thin clay slabs that form the hollow figure and base. I made the piece for a 1996 show on homelessness hosted by Iguana Galleries on Pacific Avenue in San Francisco. The sculpture seemed to portend the 2008 great recession.
It portrays, on one side, a successful business man with his trench coat, umbrella, briefcase, and the newspaper under an arm. He is standing over a group of buildings, one of which is the Stock Exchange on Wall Street.
As you walk around to the other side of the figure, he is a homeless man with a sack of aluminum cans to exchange for a few cents each and a sign reading, "Homeless, Will Work for Food."
Flasher of Fortune will sell for $1,750.

American Farm Figures
Below are three sculptures inspired by my residence in Rochester, Minnesota, from 1987-1990. I was impressed with the beauty of the farmlands and the honesty and work ethic of the Mid-Western farmers. The couple in the center sculpture are an homage to painter Grant Wood's "American Gothic" painting.
The group of three sculptures was priced at $2,500. Only the Bachelor Farmer is now available at $650.

Limited Edition Slip-Cast Ceramic Sculptures
Paloma is a slip cast hollow ceramic figure with a dove in her hands and flowers in her hair. I first sculpted the solid model out of clay, then made a 5-piece plaster mold of the clay model. After strapping the plaster mold together, I filled the mold with liquid clay (slip) and let it soak into the plaster for approximately 30 minutes before pouring out the remaining liquid clay. A shell of clay clings to the inside of the plaster mold forming the casting.
After letting the casting dry over night in the mold, I opened the mold and removed the figure. Then I cleaned up the casting, removing the seam lines formed at the joints of the mold. At that time I rolled out thin slabs of clay and cut them into petal shapes, then joined them into small flowers and leaves for the hair decorations.
The casting and the hand formed flowers are then dried for two weeks, before painting them with underglaze colors (slip with oxides). The casting and the flowers are then fired at about 2000 degrees F for 4 hours. When cooled, a clear liquid glaze is applied over the entire casting and flowers, and they are fired again.
I have made 10 castings from this mold. Each one was painted and glazed differently. Each was unique. This is the last of the series - the only one remaining. Paloma is 15" high x 11" wide.
"Paloma" ispriced at$350.

I was inspired by a trip to Sardinia to make an abstract figure of an embracing couple with a sea theme. Over the years I have sold 9 of the 10 castings I made of this sculpture titled "Embrace." This one with the blue theme is the only remaining.
"Embrace" is priced at $325.
Embrace in Blues
As Time Goes By (Front - Youth)
This hollow sculpture is one of ten slip castings made from a mold that I made of a solid clay model. It is 10" high x 10" wide x 5" deep. Each casting was glazed or painted differently. Each is unique.
The sculpture is titled "As Time Goes By." It shows a young couple from the front, and the reverse side shows them many years later. It makes a very special wedding or anniversary gift.
"As Time Goes By" is priced $325.
As Time Goes By (Back - Old)
Tahitian Woman with Flower
Seated Woman in Turquoise
I have so far made 4 castings of this seated woman. From my solid model, I made a plaster mold into which I poured liquid clay (slip), letting it dry to form a 1/4" thick casting. After the casting was dry, it was sanded, cleaned, and painted with colored slips before the first kiln firing. Then glaze was painted on and it was fired again. The flowers I have placed at their sides are hand formed from a thin slab. Each sculpture is 7" high x 5" wide x 6" deep.
These two castings of "Seated Woman" are available at $325. each.
