Work & Process
Clarke earns a living as a graphics/web designer for Learn to Blog, a company dedicated to helping people get the most out of their self hosted blog. Most of the sculpture he has produced has taken a figurative robotic form. We asked Clarke about his process and why he chooses to use this form in his artwork.
Once he was into his sculpture degree at MTSU, Clarke focused much of his energy on designing and building furniture and decor. To this day, He still designs and builds modern furniture from reclaimed materials for himself and for commission.
