Because there are variables beyond my control (clays, papers, water, mixing errors and etc) always pre test fire what you have before a big project. No guarantee can be offered that 'alternative" commercial paperclays now on the market will meet the all the performance advantages of my high performance trademark P'Clay® brand only available from licensed manufacturers/distributors.

Let's Stay in Touch
installation, Threshold: Edge of Light
Layered reflections in the window offer an illusion that dream like figures could float mid air within a street full of city life.
Human desire for freedom can be inspired by the spirit of birds but it is anchored by feet of clay and more.
Elements from a post modern "mystery play" are hand built porcelain paperclay ceramic figurines that refer to myths and our yearning liberation and freedom to fly. Icarus fell to earth as wax melted for his wings.
