I make hand-built pottery, sculpture, ornaments, masks, menorahs, and other clay objects.

I also use glazed and painted ceramic objects in digitally constructed illustrations, including a children's book and a Tarot deck.

Nyarlathotep

It rained all night in my corner of the Sonoran Desert and the road to civilization is too flooded for me to go to massage therapy school today. The desert turns into a swamp. The toads are singing. Dragonflies hunt smaller insects in the air.

These sculptures are based on an illustration of Nyarlathotep from S. Petersen's Field Guide to Cthulhu Monsters. In Lovecraft's stories, Nyarlathotep serves as an intermediary between the Outer Gods and lesser beings. This particular avatar of Nyarlathotep is called The Howler in Darkness. The Field Guide is meant to be used in a Cthulhu-themed RPG.

The sculpture on the right has the head of a Burgess Shale organism called Sanctacaris, or "Santa Claws."
