I use clay, paper, watercolor, colored silk, stone, beads, and found objects to express the sacredness inspired by working in the natural world around me . From its depths, its rhythms, its movement I create patterns and textures. The colors inspire my glaze surfaces. Nature's movement inspire my forms. Sometimes I make round forms totally enclosed and as they start to dry and shrink one can observe a slight pregnant rounding of the shape. At that point I will open the form which now has the pregnant roundness forever mapped into the vessel. The interaction of clay and me is visible in every piece I make. Each step invites me to let go and also to push the piece as far as it will go. However the piece evolves, there is always an element of surrender necessary in order to fully bring each piece to life .
