I am drawn to clay in ways that are sometimes hard to translate into words. There is something about molding an object from a lump of clay, be it porcelain or stoneware, thrown on a wheel or built by hand. There is a balance that can be achieved that draws me into my studio each and every day. I do not sketch my work prior to constructing it but the vision that is so strong in my mind guides my hands and eyes into developing the images that I conceive.
I love finding the hidden nuances and bringing those out in sometimes very subtle ways.
It is a dance, one that I plan on continuing for many many years to come.
