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.

Apple of Discord with Anomalocaris

This was constructed as a symbol to identify myself as a Discordian in a public place. It didn't really work and I was thus not identified as a Discordian. The K is for kallisti, which may or may not mean "for the most beautiful one," a reference to the golden apple thrown by the goddess Eris in a mythological version of the cause of the Trojan War. The modern Discordian movement worships Eris less as a hateful jealous warmonger and more as a trickster goddess who represents chaos in its original sense of raw possibility and who transcends the dualities of order and disorder, creation and destruction.





This is a clay version of the same object. The anomalocaris is glazed and the rest of the apple is painted with acrylics.
