The most elemental connection to our earth is working in clay.  It is an essential need for any potter to feel this association to their world.  Working with clay provides peace and rhythm while constantly challenging and teaching me as i work.

Clay is a connection to the physical; form is the connection to the ethereal.  In the sculptural sense, I explore the relationship of our universe with forms that have rhythm; joining the mind, spirit and body.  We study the form, explore its beauty and proceed to use it for food, or maybe flowers to nourish our body and soul.  In this fast paced technical world, to slow down and appreciate the beauty and idea behind handmade work is something we need to cherish and keep relevant for generations to come.
