Home Sounding Boards was a solo show consisting of twenty boards and three drawings at the Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard CA, 2000. Also included in the portfolio are a selection of more recent boards.

These Sounding Boards represent an ongoing series of work based on the ironing board as a template or unifying framework.

The ironing board is an ubiquitous domestic shape that evokes a mundane and frequent task performed mechanically, almost unconciously. As a shape it resembles the lancet arch in gothic architecture and in these sculptures it echoes the traditional composition of stained glass windows with medallion, transom and tracery. A row of them on the wall is like a clerestory in a church, illuminating the nave with mythic images.
