When your Dreams are bigger than You are
Gessoed panels and fabric are the welcome mats for the varied cast of birds and animals found in my work. My mind invites them in from their natural settings of fields, trees, and water. They are gracious visitors who bring joy and dazzle me with their beauty, inspiring work and images that attempt to bridge the gap between what is natural and what is civilized. Their feathers and fur seek to soften the hard edges of our dwelling places and our fact-filled lives. We are encouraged to ask questions that would lead us to the very edge of a new way of being.

In the Cooler: Craig Clifford
Wisconsin Bird Project
Craig Clifford describes the act of birding as a way to draw out hidden elements within the landscape. His ceramic sculptures include portraits of the many birds he finds on his excursions and serve to mark a moment on time when a particular bird was found in a specific place.
