REFLECTION, THOUGHTS, DESCRIPTIONS...FROM A TRANSPLANT WHO FOLLOWED HIS LOVE TO PARADISE (OR CLOSE TO IT)

An earlier work from the 1990's. A work that incorporates the use of indigenous tattoo pattern with a twist, this keeps the work fresh and the pattern gives it a relevance to the region. This is a large hand built piece 36" tall and is in a private collection here in Saipan.
Raku style piece that was created in the mid-1990s, I really enjoy the Raku process, the involvement of the artist while the work is still glowing red hot and the serendipity of some of the surface decoration.
Raku Fish Group with a luster glaze, I really had some beautiful results and these works were very popular.
Sadog Tasi (area), Saipan (Island), Northern Mariana Islands
I teach visual arts at Northern Marianas College on the beautiful island of Saipan , and create art works in my home studio in Sadog Tasi. I have been selected in a juried international competition to represent the Northern Mariana Islands and create four of my sculptures for the 9th, 11th and 12th annual Changchun China International Sculpture Symposium. This blog is in journal format, my observations, reflections and thoughts... most resent at the top.
