These, my most recent works in sculpture, flow into different directions simultaneously: small scale realism in Bronze and large scale ceramic abstractions. The bronze sculptures which are a collaboration between my wife and I are simplified realism. These works reflect the beautiful life we have together. these works are intentionally small in size (as is my wife). With the scale of these works I hope creates a sense of intimacy between the viewer and the art.

As for the large-scale ceramic Works my motivation is moved from the duty of life to the tragedy of 911. I am currently constructing a series which I call Cores from ground zero. This series for me is the way to deal with the new reality we all face . These works are made up of an assemblage of elements both symbolic and abstract. These works are my imagining of a core pulled from ground zero turned upside down and put on display. The works are meant to be thought-provoking not horrific. I see these forms as "sociological stalagmites" their shape symbolizing not only the towers but the sociological forces which both create and destroy.
