Artist and Lawrence native Barry Coffin carries with him a portfolio that doubles as a scrapbook. Inside are photographs of the ceramic sculptor's whimsical American Indian figures, which have evolved over time from bold-featured, cloaked warriors to sometimes featureless, limbless suggestions of the human form.
