My art work changes with my connection to the earth and though I love collage, painting and photography but it is clay that I feel brings me closest to Earth. I have been a serious artist for over 60 years and 42 of those years were in clay. This Fall I celebrate my connection with clay with new vessels ,shrines and small sculptures that speak the poetry of being alive and connecting to the moment. I am using a mid range stoneware, with slips, stains, glaze and under glaze but will combine the final result with other materials.
