Artist’s Statement: My work as a potter and teacher starts from a place of nature and connection.Often I receive creative inspiration while walking in the woods. My work on the “Totemic Dream” series references the connection with nature, human forms and spirit. The large sculptures remind the viewer of ancient ancestral markers and guardian figures. Round orb forms like those found in nature rest easily upon disks. The pieces are stacked on a vertical or horizontal orientation allowing “play in space”. The totems are symbolic of the human journey seeking inner depth community and spirit. I am proud to be included in this show with my fellow potters.
