Product description: My works are powerful sculptural clay forms which I hand build, using clay coils, slabs, and altered wheel thrown elements. My Nudes are abstracted forms ,which show movement. My ideas come from landscapes, the hills, valleys the textures of the earth. I see tree forms that suggest a human form. I see the Nude form in those terms. My sculptures have a feminine earthy quality. My Nudes are one of a kind. As I am building a form, I work on several at a time. As I hand building, I am using an African, South west form of working clay. As these sculptural forms grow, one form suggest, ideas for the next form. I like to think they speak to each other. I fire my clay in a gas kiln, which I built, I glaze and then pit fire my work in pit that has been dug in the ground and fire with live oak leaves and moss. This primitive form of firing has been used all over the world. I also Raku my clay forms. I love to experiment and I find many wonderful rich colors can be reached. Silvery blacks and smoked colors depending on the color glazes I use. Luminescent black patinas, delicate metallic lines show a strong and graceful presence on my forms. I use gold, copper, and silver leaf; as well as lusters as a contrast against the smoked surfaces. My wall murals are highly textured using my son, and now grandsonís shoes for designs. The bottom of shoes can deliver interesting textures. I use antique lace from my Grandmother and old buttons that my Mother collected. Any texture that I feel the piece needs I press into the soft slabs of clay. I care and add wheel altered forms to my murals. I have built many for hotel lobbies and banks, as well as homes. Each mural and wall hanging is one of a kind. I make all my own beads, which are used in my murals. My wheel and hand built vase forms are highly glazed, painted, gold and copper leaf and silver leaf are used on these forms. They look like jewels and light plays beautiful off the surfaces. Each form is one of a kind. They are very elegant. My functional platters and bowls are an extension of my sculptural work. They are made using stoneware clay and food safe glazes. They are dishwasher safe.
