I fell in love with manhole covers many years ago, finding great beauty in these old industrial objects.  I started by taking graphite rubbings and ended up with slabs of clay in the trunk of my car.  I love color in all forms, and particularly here combined with designs made for iron and city streets. I have collected impressions of covers from DC, New York, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Santa Fe, and California.  I like the iconic nature of repetition in the large wall pieces.  I have installations in the New York TImes building in New York City, the BG Global building in Huston and many private homes.
