Weathered earth, sedimentary strata, layered landscape, and suspended moments are all phrases that collectively define this body of work. These ceramic rock forms are memorials for past moments and beacons for future ones, enlightenment on what has come and cautioning for what is to come. There is a rhythm present in each stratum that echoes horizontally outward towards the viewer, encouraging introspection, but also carries with it a sense of urgency and awareness of the present. Each large ceramic sedimentary form combines fossils from the past and proposed fossils from the future while other rock forms are treated as specimens with a specific single fossil in them. Smaller specimens are displayed in handled mobile specimen containers. This body of work captures those moments before ensuing change, when the present becomes locked as an artifact in the past, which is continually redefined by the future.
