Craig Clifford's work attempts to transform common objects so they become more than everyday forms and images.  He casts functional, and found objects and incorporates them into sculptural tableaus that are informed by color, kitsch and popular culture. Clifford's process includes a three-dimensional collage technique that creates a texture to hold color and inform content.
