Working in clay since he was a child, Gregory story strives to create the unexpected. The surfaces of his work often trick the eye and appear to be wood or steel or glass. His pieces take shapes that are at once traditional and modern. Story plays with patterns the way a painter plays with light, owing much of his aesthetic to a love of mid-century textiles. His wall sculptures, called wallballs, are an exciting alternative to 2d art, and are dramatic, playful, and joyous. They engage the collector who is invited to take the components story has created and "complete the picture" themselves.
