Studies in form.

Clay pots

Now it’s a cocoon. Now a moth. Now it’s something else. What is that thing?

Now it’s beautiful. Now it can kill. Now it’s pure passion. Now it’s a study in precision, one-part formal event, another part emotive creature. Fluid and gorgeous, then stoically opaque.

It is delicate, backbreaking work. Now innocent, now disturbing. This heavy love.


Inspired by this interview with Kathy Butterly, which is my introduction to the sculptor’s work.

I keep watch and listen, mostly in dark places.
