Artist's Statement: I am drawn to the natural earth qualities of clay: the smell, the look, the feel of its granular surface as it's stretched by the pressure of my fingertips. My fascination with texture and the pliable nature of clay leads me to examine not just the outside, or on the skin but inside, below the surface. I challenge myself by finding new ways to better express and use these elements in my work. I find the historical uses of clay, wood, metal, and stone valuable resources, but nothing speaks to me more clearly than the material itself and how it responds to manipulation.
