Inspiration: My garden and all things left in their natural state.
Clay can be stretched, pushed and pulled into amazing and beautiful forms. I create my work so that those who see and touch it can readily experience the fluid movement, natural edges, turns and hidden crevices. I am not trying to replicate what I see in nature, but instead, celebrate it.
Each vessel is a combination of wheel-thrown and hand-built clay that is fired multiple times in the kiln until the desired effect is achieved.
