Clay & Earth ~ What We Stand On
. Ceramic Earth Art .
As a native of California, the clay state, I love turning clay to stone.
I feel an urgency to create art in this revolutionary time and value clay’s infinite potential − mirroring our own.
My intention is to share work that stirs the visceral will to face our many challenges,
with hope and joy, in the beauty that is in us and all other life. Beauty, that is under our feet and setting sail at our backs.
Prior to creating my clay art, I spent 45 years working as a dancer, choreographer, massage and dance therapist. My focus toward clay began in 2010. For me, science and art have always been a natural mix. I still incorporate my love of research & field observation, by hiking in the woods, internet or garden, with a ruler, camera & sketchbook.
My art draws from the knowledge that everything…us, our food, homes, clothes, tools, toys all come from the ‘clay’ of the earth. My hope is, that we will seek nature-based, just solutions to grow, gather and consume leaving the smallest fingerprint.
