A brief paragraph at most.I have made pottery wall vases for years that reflect my interest in nature’s colors and textures.

About the Artist. A sentence or short paragraph please.“My claywork has always been about process, relationship and my surroundings. Taking the fluidity of clay in my hands and transforming it into lasting rigidity lets me take the feeling of place and give it a related connection in creative work. For me, the creative process starts with a mental image which is then given physical form. It must involve vision, challenge, resourceful materials and a sense of playfulness. Nature, my life long teacher, has inspired me with leaf designs that start out so temporary and then are preserved forever as impressions in clay. I see them as the “fossils of the future”!
