I have been asked “what statement am I trying to make in my art, and the answer is, “I don’t have one specific statement”. We all have several layers of ourselves and thought my art I am “pealing” back all of the layers.
Mother Earth has provided me with an incredible supply of clay, it is such a forgiving and yet a temperamental medium that pushes me, as an artist. Clay allows me to create various designs, add textures, carve or even add multiple layers into the design.
I have tried to have a “plan” before I begin a piece, but I am more of a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of person. One thing I can guarantee, is my art is always evolving and no two will ever be the same; even my so called “Functional” pieces have some alterations to them, I like to make sure every piece has a distinct personality to it, so it will speak to the unique individual who acquires it.
