My fascination with architectural ruins of long gone cultures leads me to consider, What is permanent? This has proved to be an issue with many fingers. Decay is one which I have employed with this work. Nothing made by hands is permanent. So these works, like all things, are in an ever changing stage of falling apart. They take on a life of their own.

Unlike our brothers around the world, we Americans cannot find the beauty in things old, crackling and faded. In Japan, wabi sabi is a cultivated appreciation of these phenomena. The Italians, and most Europeans, have turned necessity into treasure uncountable. Most of these adobe works are in response to a particular feature of the landscape or architecture.
