Artist’s Statement: Capturing the spirit of nature and creating a cup bowl jar vase or mask that’s a delight to see hold and use is my goal as an artist. Working with clay is like coming home. The smooth feel of porcelain on the wheel is soothing. Rolling a slab is centering. Sculpting leaves buds or faces is peaceful. Using this three dimensional form as a canvas I draw on my background in design and painting to create layers of color texture and contrast in my clay forms.
