Artist / Personal Statement
Early in my artist career I became aware that I was attracted to the unglazed clay surface. Mark making was, to me, a part of the process, like the way natural erosion marks the land. Using slips, stains and engobes, I learned that I could enhance these marks. This dry, touched surface became the formal basis of my work. Clay records my touch as I work with it, not unlike the brushstrokes of a painter; it records a moment in time, or a thought process. These marks compare to our own journeys through life and how they are molded to make us who we’ve become.
