“Boundless Guardian”………………………………… Equine – Figurative ceramic sculpture……………….. April 13 thru June 9, 2013 at Ojai Valley Museum


“Reflections” exhibition at Ojai Valley Museum, Celebrates 30th Anniversary of the Ojai Studio Artists.
“Boundless Guardian”, ceramic one -fire clay sculpture.

Most relished for their strength, speed, endurance, the stout, elegant, graceful beast turned upside down is a turbulent fury of legs and muscles twisting with perpetrating trials of momentum to magically fling itself upright. The figure stands erect in a trance of command, contained yet immortal to the bursting of untamed energy.
