Artist's Statement: This series of sculptural work is inspired by the ancient world of Goddess-worshipping, Matriarchal cultures where the Goddess was the unity of life in nature, and all was sacred on earth.

Interweaving these symbols of ancient mythology and archaeology from these cultures, I create contemporary forms using images of the phases of the moon and the bird Goddess.

Each sculpture is carefully decorated with 5 to 6 layers of flashing slips, applied with brushwork and spraying to achieve the rich, complex painterly surfaces reminiscent of the ancient artifacts from these cultures of old Europe.
