In prodding the clay into taking on new forms, I sense an ancient, elemental, connection. Both the clay and I are of the earth and are uniquely linked in relationship with nature and the living things that I adore. Within this unique and very personal relationship, I love that I don’t have to follow any design rules or try to meet anyone’s expectations in my work. I am free to express myself as I so choose. In creating my art, I am happy. My soul is satisfied and content. I am home.
