4x4 grass ceramic grass sculpture. Grass and the events that lead to making grass out of clay and what these sculptures symbolize for me is example of serendipity. I went to visit an artist friend of mine who also owns the West Michigan Clay Co, where I buy my clay for school and my home studio. I have not purchased much for my home studio since I started my M.F.A. in painting at SCAD. But over the years, He has become a friend. His wife had been very ill for a long time. She passed away right after thanksgiving. I got to thinking about his Medical bills funeral costs and the emotional toll of losing the love of his life of over thirty years. So I ordered a slab roller. For some reason, I felt the urge to buy one. I had no plans for it at the time. They are quite expensive, but I rationalized it and I went to visit him, pick up my purchase, and pay my condolences. Each sculpture is unique and is a symbol of resiliency.
