Pre Installation work

These pieces are being cast in plaster using live models for a future installation. Here are the original sketches created in ArtRage 4 software program and re established on canvas with acrylic .

Below is an Installation piece presented at a show for Goddard University - Inspired by a true story of a 4 year old boy tossed from a moving car into the desert by his father, because "God told him to." The boy was rescued by a passer by in the early morning darkness.

Poetry manifest in clay - Hybrid Multi Medium 

Both pieces are created in a Raku kiln using a saggar technique in which  artifacts such as feathers , horse hair , sea weed, salt, sugar , a cactus flower pedal and copper foil were symbolically pressed up against the clay which is then enveloped in another vessel. Saggar firing was originally developed to protect wares from ash-slagging and flame-flashing in wood firings, but in contemporary use, with clean-burning gas firings, the process is used in exactly the opposite way: to contain fumes around a pot so that the pot picks up color from the fumes.Up close you can see the feathers and crystals of salt.

Pequeña piel del Niño ,

Small child hide


Fly this way

Let me catch you

Niño pequeño

Little boy


Se esconden en el miedo

Small one, hide in fear

Beneath the cactus

and a midnight sky

You are safer with the wolves


The desert sand burries you

Cubrir, mi alma los ojos azules

Cover, my blue eyed soul

The thorns pain stiffens you

Lifes visions

Haunt you

Ha mentido

He has lied


Que no era una madre, un padre

That was not a parent,a father

He was not given , he stole

No father knows he

You are free




Cast to the feral city streets

Arms . limbs , hearts

Hands , lips, tears

Confuse you with their touch





Here in sleep

A new mother sings for you

Only for you

La nación de pecadores nos

lleva a perdonar

A nation of sinners begs your forgiveness

They lost  you

in  their cinematic ignorance

Where you are not real


They see you now


Desde arriba promies vienen

Down from above come new promises

Desde arriba vienen las nuevas verdades

Down from above come new truths



  He lied ,

del Niño ,  He lied
