Artist's Statement: I began making these vessels after spending a week at the beach with my family. At the time, I did not realize how deeply the patterns I saw during that vacation would affect my clay work. I looked at shells, sand, water, ripples, even the repetition of trees in the forest that we explored. Maybe it was the good feeling of that time that I try to recapture in these pieces, or maybe I'm trying to make more permanent in the solidity of clay some of the ephemeral and always changing beauty that happens and then disappears in the natural world.
