What is Quartz Inversion?
No, it’s not a quart of milk standing on its head. It’s the point at which silica crystals in clay change their molecular structure during the rise and fall of temperatures in the kiln. Heat serves as a catalyst for permanent change. Very cool idea. I think of it as a metaphor for most things in life. The transformational power of art can change us at the very core. Our actions change the earth every day, for better or worse. The choices we make, the thoughts we have, and the words we say change us in every way at every moment--from the inside out. I like to think that I go through a quartz inversion on a regular basis....and once quartz inversion occurs, there is no going back.

I'm just about done preparing for the upcoming group show, 'EXPOSURE' at the Ceres Gallery. Not sure exactly which pieces will go in, but these are a few contenders. Having had to pull a show together in such a short amount of time was a great way to get me jump-started into my next body of work. Although I'm not 100% thrilled with every one of these pieces they did steer towards a new theme. One which I am excited about pursuing after the show comes down....
