The Unfolding Stoneware Clay Sculpture
When I created this particular stoneware clay sculpture, spring was on my mind. I thought about the plants and trees and how the leaves seem to unfurl and stretch from a long winter. The bright verdant green underbrush creates a backdrop for spectacular flowers that begin to materialize out of nowhere. And so it is with all of life. We stay cocooned in our inner sanctuary until the time comes for a change. Here is the story I wrote for my sculpture. It seems fitting.
So long in the cocoon..and now she was to away.because they had been called to the world and she had been called …to herself.

The Unfolding is similar to the sculpture we will be creating in my sculpture class this summer. Of course, she will be nude since we will be working from live models. If anyone is interested in taking an all inclusive sculpture class, where we will be studying the face and figure, please view details at my website located here You can also e-mail me if you are interested in the class or sculpture.

All Carmalized and Oh So Yummy!

Yes. You read right. It took me only one minute to create this delectable vegetable dish. ..and yes…it’ IS cauliflower. I know, a lot of you may not like cauliflower. I wasn’t particularly fond of it myself until I listened to my friend and fellow artist, Jerry. He was on our Farmer’s Market in Roanoke the other day, and had a very interesting looking lunch he had brought from home. Upon inquiring, he gave me the recipe. Recipe? What recipe. There is absolutely nothing to it.

Cauliflower On Tray Before Roasting

1 large head of cauliflower
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 400. Place aluminum foil on cookie sheet. Place cut cauliflower onto foil and drizzle with about ½ cup of olive oil or more to completely cover. Add salt and pepper. Roast for 40-45 minutes.

"Wow! The cauliflower carmalizes in the oil and tastes unlike anything you have ever eaten before. People who hate cauliflower, LOVE this recipe. Who ever heard of a vegetable that absolutely melts in your mouth? Imagine what it would taste like with garlic added or maybe pureed into a soup? Possibilites are endless.

Hope you enjoy and thanks Jerry!
