Ceramic sculpture,"A New Beginning", sells at John Natsoulas Gallery

My newest sculpture, "A New Beginning", sold at the 30 Ceramic Sculpture Show at John Natsoulas Gallery this May
Ceramic, 04, under glazes, stains, oxides, glazes. Gold Leaf, Feathers. Hand built.
H 29 x W 17x D 10

"A New Beginning " A large gold leafed bowl is perched atop the head of a Bald Eagle, Birds of Prey feathers, found walking the California hills fan out from the base of this pot of gold. The neck and body of the bird are drawn and painted with three merging landscape views taken from three great American state parks. This piece was created during the final days of the last election transitioning into a needed and most welcome new beginning.

My work is forever changing, growing and expanding. This piece represents one of those transitional phases when one series of work merges into another. I have been drawing and painting on clay recently, but my love for building large one of a kind sculptures has to be satisfied. This sculpture represents huge changes in my life. A new job with Apple, soon to be empty nester, selling our home and loss of my studio, but with that comes the unknown and chances of a new beginning.
