Over 3 decades have passed since I spent time a ceramics studio. And this year, when I placed my hands on clay, a dormant love affair was instantly rekindled. The familiar touch and exchange of energy felt like reuniting with a long forgotten lover. She felt like home.
My return to clay was inspired by a rebirth. My rebirth. And my desire to do things for the first time, - again.
I don’t “make things” I do what the material calls me to do. We create together. I have always loved the union of sharp geometry and the softness and unpredictability of organic shapes and edges. And the positivities and negativities of space and of life.
A successful sculpture of mine is when I experience a calm, comfortable, engaging process, maybe a clever design, with a little intrigue tossed in the mix.
