For the MIPCES catalog, David Edwards wrote:

“The Burgess shale was discovered in 1909. Its exquisitely detailed fossils are among the most important ever discovered in paleontology. In collections, the shale consists of hand-dressed gray-black slabs, each containing one or more fossils depicting the ‘Cambrian explosion’ of life. ‘The Burgess Shale’ represents a contemporary, subjective interpretation of the shale, intended for leisurely contemplation and thoughtful examination of its components.”

This piece of David’s was also on display in the MIPCES exhibiton.

I cannot remember a time in my life that I wasn't interested in looking at art, talking about art and the making of art. In 1990 I earned a Phd in art history at the University of Maryland. My first experiences with polymer clay were in 1992, but I consider my real work with the medium to date from 1999.
