Artist's Statement: I have been working in clay for over forty years, both functionally and sculpturally. After all these years I continue to go back to the classical forms inspired by the Sung Dynasty potters. This piece is from a recent series in which I am using bright colors and textures to give an additional blast of life to the art. A potter couldn't get such vibrant colors at high-fire temperatures when I first began my clay career. What a thrill to now be able to get these colors into high-temperature work that will endure for thousands of years. The message I am trying to convey with this piece: JOY!
