In 2005, I began combining ceramics and paintings with clay morphing into canvases and by using glazes in a painterly manner. The second generation of canvases lifted up from a flat surface into three dimensions with clay folding over the edges representing tucked fabric, a nod to trompe l'oeil.  Realism and control depart when, in the house of three: artist, kiln and glazes, the cooled kiln reveals chance results.  The outcome can be intoxicating.
