Two-dimensions had always been the way I expressed myself, until I started working in clay. The organic and tactile nature of clay was what first intrigued me and inspired me. By throwing, rolling, or hand-building I create surfaces of clay to work as canvases for my designs and carvings. Each piece has an individual design created to enhance its shape or form. For inspiration I look to nature. Some of my designs are botanical and free flowing and some designs are patterns that reconnect with themselves around the forms surface. Sometimes I create scenes or sculptures as well. The possibilities when working with clay are endless.
