Artist Statement

Clay is wonderful in that is gives my work an infinite range of possibilities not just as a plastic material but as a chameleon of stages and states. In raw form, fired or melted glass, art tile panels and ceramic vessels, in groupings or solo, can interplay the reflections of our functional and visual cultural environment. I explore a metamorphic use of filtered clay bodies, color, texture and shape of the hand made ceramic vessels and art tile to contemplate the diversity of clay as an art form. Patterns on the art tiles may strike a conversation with repeated elements on the vessels.
