About this work
"Horses are historic figures of the American West in their own right, whose presence and purpose have walked alongside our own, from the Native American reverence of their spirit and power, to the partnership developed by ranchers and cowboys, to the wild Spanish horses that roam the plains. I seek to capture their historic and modern importance by honoring their form through my mixed-media modern-day relics by studying the global reverence of the horse, from mythology to the building of civilizations, and allowing their form and spirit to emerge from clay by combining Eastern and Western ceramic tradition."
