ARTIST STATEMENT

Clay moves me and keeps me centered, but I am also drawn to how a lump of the earth can be become an artifact that links me to the past. When archeologist dig, clay vessels are often found and show us the trace of our passage on this earth. My work can be sculptural and functional and sometime both at the same time.
