Artist's Statement: Clay is a primal, living material; I have chosen it because it gives me a sense of connectedness. I get a similar feeling when working with the soil when gardening. Each piece of pottery is individually thrown on a potter's wheel, then altered and/or hand built to complete. Line and form drive my making, I strive for a sense of flow or movement in my pieces; I gently curve, fold and cut the clay to give that feeling of movement. I am inspired by forms in the natural world, and the natural flow or motion of moving liquid, such as water, as it moves around objects.
