I love the adventure of creating with clay, from a thought in my mind, a dream, into reality. Clay challenges me to pay attention to everything, from the thought, the making, the drying, the bisque, the glazing, to the final firing. It allows me to experience and be aware of a wide range of emotions: fear, disappointment, anticipation, the feeling of a job well done, to the joy of sharing the final product. It's living an eternal beginning; there is always a new form waiting at the next turn.
My inspiration is the sea, I seek guidance from it and it's ever changing moods and movements, energy, patience and quiet contemplation. So when the day begins, neither of us really knows where we are going, but we go together in search of making that perfect creation.
