Ceramics

My ceramic work is eclectic. I make both functional and sculptural pottery. As a rather practical person, I’ve discovered through clay that I am drawn to fantasy. I’m intrigued by the connectedness of natural and man made things and the relationships possible between them. Magical towers float in the sea, fish grow wings, and human forms and faces combine with birds, fish and flowers… the possibilities are limited only by my imagination. Flowers, wings and water have become metaphors for my journey.
