I am excited to invite you to view my ceramic and desert wood assemblages which will be included in the 33rd annual Made in Clarkdale Show between December 6 through December 9 at the Clark Memorial Clubhouse in Clarkdale. I have included a picture of one of the pieces I will include in my showcase. This is Ohhh!
My art is imbued with whimsy and creativity. Many have told me, as they entered my studio, “Wow! I have never seen anything else like these!” I have been doing my ceramics at the Reitz Ranch in Sycamore Canyon and combined this with the desert woods I have been collecting.
Among the variety of sculptural pieces I have created, I have made 32-piece custom chess sets. With these, I began with the question, if there were to be a chess game played here in the Verde Valley, what would the pieces be? Dead tree stumps, coyotes, shamans and beetles. Kings and queens were definitely father sky and mother Earth! Come see what I created. I will be selling both entire sets and individual pieces (called ChessMates).
Made in Clarkdale is one of the premiere art exhibits in this area. Artists work in media including painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics and jewelry. This is an opportunity to view imaginative art, and to do a bit of gift shopping, as well. I am certain you will enjoy this experience.

You can find the Clark Memorial Clubhouse in downtown Clarkdale. It is tucked into the building complex housing the library and the police station.
I look forward to seeing you this week in Clarkdale.
