Friends, I've moved to the SquareSpace 6 platform

SquareSpace 6 offers promising features, and I've transported this blog and its galleries to that platform. I'm hoping my kind visitors have been transported too -- my url is now pointed to that version. So, if you find you're reading this, please go to  which is current.  (All comments have moved along with the blog; in fact we can have 'threaded comments' over there, which is inspiring me to change my evil ways and answer more promptly!)

Thanks so much for your patience, and a Very Happy New Year to You and Yours!



Shell-horned being, underway


Another East of the Sun, West of the Moon

A piece inspired by the work of Kay Nielsen, whose illustrations I discovered as a small child. In Premier air dry clay, about 14.5 inches tall:


"To regret one's own experience is to arrest one's own development. To deny one's own experiences is to put a lie into the lips of one's own life. It is no less than a denial of the soul."

Venetian Harpy, in progress

She's in air-dry clays. Her surface is mostly in "Premier," which is very smooth and easily formed. Back view:Side view


Flidais and the White Deer

goddess flidais with white doe by Forest Rogers
Here we have a pair of beings sculpted in Kato Polyclay, and Aves Apoxie Sculpt. Flidais (the more human of the two) would be about 8 inches tall, standing. She holds a staff of gold-filled wire, copper foil and goldleaf, with bead berries.
