Title:  “Last Tree Standing”  

Year:  2014

Medium:  Ceramic

Description:  Sculpture

Style:  Contemporary/Abstract

Subject/Inspiration:  My work is often inspired by nature related themes.  Every two seconds a forest the size of a football field is destroyed.  At this pace, the deforestation of the world’s rain forests will vanish in 100 years which will greatly affect climate change and disruption to the ecological system. 
"Last Tree Standing” is a testament to the rain forests.  Deforestation will accelerate climate change with devastating results globally.
