Welcome to Designs Underfoot.  This site showcases my ceramic sculpture based on manhole covers.  I fell in love with manhole covers many years ago, finding great beauty in these old industrial objects. I started by taking graphite rubbings and ended up with slabs of clay in the trunk of my car. I love color in all forms, and particularly here combined with designs made for iron and city streets. I have collected impressions of covers from DC, New York, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Santa Fe, and California.    This work is hand made in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
