Artist Statement
"Hello Hello, I woke up this morning and I got myself a CAPPUCCINO."
These past few years has been a re-invention of my PORCELAIN SLIP CAST VESSEL MAKING.
Inspiration from Marine Life Studies, an a recent trip to Italy, has led to an explosion of ORGANIC & FORMULATED / Plaster, Paper & Foam models, molds and castings.
"This is the strangest life I have ever known, & it's the Best of the Best, East & West, THE END."
The Philly Airport show was a tribute to a dear friend, GEORGE ROSELLI.
