July

Clayton Stamper
The actual Clayton

I’ll be showing this large bust of former local homeless person, Clayton Stamper, at the Osborn Woods Gallery as part of a group show titled “Light and Shadow.” Opening reception is July 7, during the First Friday Artwalk. The gallery will also be open during Nevada City’s Summer Nights. Clayton disappeared last fall, and there are rumors he’s around somewhere, Reno or Southern California, who knows. He would be turning 58 years on July 15.

Lady M

This is the other piece I have in the show. It is of Lady Macbeth, with the two daggers used to kill King Duncan. She, of course, comes to a bad end. It is a large wall piece, ceramic on panel.

Cat Tower, unfired clay

I’m making this playful piece for my daughter’s garden.

Grey Kitty RIP

This cat was 20+ years. He was a feral cat that appeared at the house one day. He outlived most of the other cats. He was a tough old guy who finally decided enough was enough and wandered out to offer himself to the foxes.
