I feel an urgency to create art in this revolutionary time and value clay's infinite potential— mirroring our own.
I love working with clay as a base material from the earth, pushing its limits and revealing its innate qualities. I sculpt to explore craft meeting art in an attempt to honestly reveal and inspire discussion of the personal and social issues of people living in the natural world. The challenges and simple pleasures.
I am a native Californian and feel a strong kinship with her plants, animals and geology, both in wild places and where I've lived since 1971 in East Oakland.
Clay has a memory. It records your fingerprints and all the ways you held it in your hands. Our earth has a memory and responds to our manipulations. My work in clay draws from the knowledge that everything…food, home, clothes, tools, toys all come from the ‘clay’ of the earth and the hope that we will remember to grow, gather & consume leaving the smallest fingerprint.
