Clay Ward's Profile
I'm an artist living with my dog and some friends here in ever changing New England.
I do take commissions.
Art, for me, is two things.

Second... sharing art is asking the world to question itself a little bit. How will someone use the objects I make? Why does that matter? Experiencing my work should feel pleasantly strange. And if anyone stops and thinks just quickly about that experience then at least we've left behind routine.
