Welcome! We are sad to announce the passing of L-15. We have recovered 99.9% of the his stored art and are converting the web site to memorialize him here on L-15.org. It will take time but this overview page is a great place to start. The links here and the menu above is active once again Please be patient and inform us at Daniel@L-15.org of any broken links. You may click on all the thumbnails below now to visit the indvidual pages for close up views.

L-15 says these sculptures explore the abstract outside limits of angels' form & explore the outside limits of what is possible with solid body porcelain raku sculpture. (These pieces were produced during L-15's stay at the Artist-in Residence program in Roswell, New Mexico. These pieces were on display at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico June 19 - August 11, 1987. Detailed images are now linked to the thumbnails below.
