Working with clay, natural paper/fiber and metal is an integral part of my life. Their transformation is alluring and fascinating to me - as it has been to humans through the ages. Myths, animals and other forms of nature influence my work. Capturing and expressing the essence or spirit, not solely a realistic portrayal, is my goal. I would be delighted if my functional work is enjoyed in everyday use and my non-functional work provides visual pleasure/provokes contemplation.
