I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
Since 1985, when I received my Masters of Fine Art at the University of California at Davis, I have been working as a professional artist in ceramic sculpture. My main interest has been in large figurative ceramic sculpture. In undergraduate and graduate school I was fortunate to have studied with the artist that put figurative ceramic sculpture on the map, Robert Arneson. Since then I have been showing in galleries and museums around the world and have been commissioned to do several public and private sculptures in bronze, fiberglass and ceramic.

ALoha Tony. No worries. I can barely keep up with FB and have kind of given up on trying to keep up with this Crafthaus. It's just too much computer. I prefer to be in the studio! I know you and your bro are on the outs, I just thought I'd mention it so you knew I was a "legit" artist and not one of your "groupies" LOL! LOVE the new "BOB" work! He was always one of the most influential guys in my life. When I was in H.S. (a budding) ceramicist, he was my hero. Well, him and Marilyn Levine. Bob for his politics and funk and Marilyn for her technique. My mom still has a clay leather jacket I copied of hers when I was a kid. I finished the giant sculpture I was working on when I wrote you the last note. Hallelujah! It made it to Davis without breaking in three enormous crates. Cost a bloody fortune to ship! Praying it sells. I'll see ya on FB. Until later...
Aloha Tony. I have loved your work for years!!! I am rep'd by your brother and I understand you did Wesley Anderegg's web site, which is awesome! He, Donna and Iz are good friends. Would like to meet you some day. DO you go to CCACA? Ia m currenty working on my first really big figurative piece and can use all the help I can get. Have been getting some help from Lisa Reinertson and Esther Shimazu but am still having "issues". Working on the fourth incarnation of the damn thing. Would love input from you too.
"Thank you! I knew about "Hound Dog" and had heard it before but it was great to be reminded of it. WAY better than Elvis' version.
Just while we're on such niche music, here is one of my favourites from the era, "Sweet…"
"Killer, this is so awesome. Blues is my absolute favorite music style, I will be listening to Big Mama Thornton and others from the genre all day today... Billie Ray Vaughn, oh my. How will I be able to get any work done? Thanks so much. Keep…"
"The reverse on the "cover" concept is when a cover becomes much more famous than the original. Elvis is credited with kick-starting rock n' roll music with "Hound Dog". He homogenized the tune for white audiences of the…"
