One of the fundamental principles of my sculptures is the relationship among forms. This is particularly obvious in this sculpture of two distinctive forms that need each other. The open forms of the two elements give clear evidence of the way in which I build up my large hollow forms. Small amounts of clay are thoroughly melded together with my metal and wooden tools. To support the large areas of clay as I am building, clay armatures are added to the inside of the forms.
