Clay is a unique and distinctive material. It is fluid and sensual and very responsive...until it's not. Once it dries, it crumbles, and that is a very precarious way to create. Clay teaches, and to be successful, you must listen. My challenge; my excitement is to capture the beautiful sensuality that exists in its raw state, and retain those characteristics in it's hardened, fired final form.
My work is meant to be a celebration of life; inspired by the unique and wonderful forms found in the natural world. The interpretation is not literal. My hope is that my forms portray the feeling, movement and sensuality of life.
I am especially intrigued by the fine line that exists between beautiful and strange.
I feel this line is represented well in nature
