I came from a painting background before deciding to branch into sculptural work. Clay became my prefered material to express myself into the third dimension. I love clay and what I can do with it. I like to shape form and manipulate it into something that did not exist before. However my love of color and the brush have remained with me and I find I can use the clay to build form and then paint to decorate it. I start with a lump of clay and shape it into a figure, a building or any subject that appeal to my sense of touch. After a long time and many experiments, I arrived at a way of working that satisfies my creative needs. Sometime I use molds to slump clay into its cavity and leave it inside until it has firmed a little before lifting it out. Other times I use the potters wheel and alter the thrown clay until I get the form I want as in my flower vases. I make clay slabs to construct buildings such as my theaters. After they are assembled I use brushes and colored slips to paint the inside, top, and doors like canvases. When I see a person on the street or in a public place that piques my imagination, I take a lump of clay to shape it to my satisfaction as in my whistles.
