I like to build both abstracted and figurative sculptures that refer back to nature. Growing up on the coast, I have enjoyed drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. But then I found ceramics. I have been using clay as my primary media since the 1990's. My sweetie and I currently divide our time between our studios at the Eye of the Dog Art Center in San Marcos, and Big Medium at the Canopy in Austin; both communities that we are honored to be a part of. I earned my BFA in Ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2004. Recent publications by Lark Ceramics include "Ceramic Sculpture MAKING FACES A Guide to Modeling the Head & Face with Clay" and "500 Figures in Clay, Volume 2". Some other publications include the last 7 East Austin Studio Tour Catalogs and Lark's 500 Tiles. "

I love working figuratively displaying the rawness and beauty of humanity with clay. Currently I create scenes with figures or faces on slab platters, bowls, and discs. These are portraits from the collective unconscious; an array of characters that range from grim to goofy.
