Artist Statement

I have joyfully created with clay for about ten years after primarily working in textiles as both a weaver and a silk painter. I am always drawn to texture and the layering of colors that is possible with silk dyes and try to capture that feel with my clay surfaces. Weaving and yarns are all about feel while silk painting is all about color. My love of these two elements  of textiles has influenced my work with clay.

I work with layering of colors with multiple coats of under glaze and washes applied over engobes. I frequently use dry powdered clay pressed into the wet  Additional under glazes are applied and are often finished with an oxide wash. Whether human, flora, or fauna. I try to make sure each piece is unique and shows attitude or personality.
