For the Love of the Vessel … revisiting the vessel tradition, where my journey began.
Initially, I created functional vessels to be held, used and cherished. Later, I moved on to sculpture with its limitless possibilities for expression. Now, I am revisiting and honoring the vessel as pure sculptural form. This grounding in the tradition gives me freedom to soar.
My fascination with the natural world is my constant. I am drawn to the transforming effects of wind, water and fire as they speak to the passage of time.
Working with white and red clay, my pieces are hand-built, pinched, coiled, carved, burnished and smoke-fired. I am enjoying exploring the variety of techniques, clays and firings
