And just in case I begin to lose my reputation as a sculptor, I thought I might post a photo of a 30 inch sculpture I created in 1998, that was exhibited at Gallery Mack in Seattle, then Gaskill-Olson Gallery on Whidbey Island, only to sell to a collector who hunted this piece down on the internet, purchasing it in 2003 through Trios Gallery in San Diego. Ascension Dream is hand-sculpted from white stoneware clay, and painted with oils after final firing. Inside the tower is a little girl, rising upward, hair trailing. I have a photo somewhere of that feature, maybe I'll post it when it turns up.
For those looking at my blog outside the U.S., Australia or the U.K., there is a translation gadget you might have noticed now on the top right of my blog page. Those more comfortable reading in their own language can use that to translate my blog text!
