ACGA Artist of the Day: Fred Yokel

Fred Yokel

Exhibiting Member - Clay

What can I say? I like working with clay. In the Joseph Campbell world, I have found my bliss. There are so many things to explore with clay--texture, color, form. And I have fun with all of them. I find much of my inspiration in the natural world. Rocks, plant life and sea life all give me ideas to build upon when I work with clay. Currently I'm exploring the figurative world--distantly based on the human figure, but not very anatomiclly correct. I'm trying to capture movement and expression in the figures and infuse them with a little humor at the same time. I like to laugh, eh.
