Artists Statement:

While I was wandering, clay found me. Pushing and shaping me while my hands shaped it. Rough and smooth, shiny and dull, soft yet solid, clay has shared its many faces with me and helped me reveal my own. My work is not meant to be seen from afar. It is to be felt, touched, caressed. In the texture you'll feel stories, in the glazes you'll glimpse life's nature. Blues, greens, browns - earth's colours. The earth. From which clay is born, and from which all things grow.
