    My current body of work, dubbed as Lab Critters, is a series of ceramic animal characters, hand built from various black and red stoneware clays. On the surface, these sculptures are simply feral rodents, suspended in a moment of action. Beneath the surface, these critters and their stories are responses to current issues surrounding animal rights, in particular vivisection.

    “The process begins with a study of the anatomy and physiology of each wonderful creature before sculpting my own adaptation. I sculpt a rough form, a three dimensional sketch in a way, using the clay to preserve the spontaneity of my gestures, then carefully adding on small details such as toes and ears. This long process results in characters which exert a rich presence.”
