Early work

“Dancing Green” was made for an exhibit about recycling and repurposing materials. Included in this piece are old clothing, yarn, foil for the stars and styrofoam to build contour. Here it is in its home, as part of a private collection.

“My Sister’s Pots” was made for my sister, who is a fabulous ceramic artist. You can see her work at http://www.patriciagriffinceramics.com.


“Pineapple Quilt” was made for a friend of mine who decorates her home with images of the pineapple to communicate a welcome to visitors.  Historically, sailors would bring back pineapples from their journeys, which were posted in front of the their homes to communcate their return from the sea. It continues as a welcome home symbol. to this day.
