A potpourri, including some small hand-painted tiles, created on commercial tiles for a show curated by Tom Billings. Also included are some of my memory jugs, which include ceramic bits (some found on the Thames Foreshore in London, others in a river in Kyoto, in Turkey and Mexico), found objects and toys. I have included a modified porcelain Mao bust (as the sad clown that he was) as well as my painted Neolithic Pot from China in admiration of Ai Wei Wei's Coca-cola painted Neolithic pots.
