April Sky & Figlets

By double clicking on the picture, you can pretend you are high up in the tree. And you don't need long sleeves since you won't get itchy in the photo.

My favorite tree on the property –
and catch this incredible blue sky – a rare day in Fresno!

Some quick clay sketches. Not one to do a lot of sketching on paper, I prefer going directly to clay. This helps work out forming techniques and I often see new forms emerge. The clay seems to direct me to new shapes. Sometimes I fire them, sometimes not. Sometimes they are trashed. Lately I've been saving them to do something special.
