The Clay Kimono series is one with more directly personal references than any other art work that I do. I was born in Japan where my father was a consul in an American Consulate. I have pictures of myself wearing a Japanese kimono at age two. The kimono forms a square or rectangle when the sleeves and body are laid flat. The obi tie sash is in evidence in the middle of each plaque. Historical Japanese kimonos were as much paintings as garments and sometimes expressed the textile artist's views of historical or current events. These plaques express my views of personal events.
