Fall 2022

This series of ceramic sculptures was inspired in part by images of Mayan and Aztec scribes. The scribe played an important role in these societies. I was impressed with the lively and engaging drawings and carvings depicting scribes with elaborate hair styles and the way they would place their stylus in their hair. Clay is an appropriate medium for these explorations since both cultures were also master ceramicists.
