Artist Statement

Clay speaks to me.  It has since I first touched it in a beginning ceramics class at University of New Mexico.  Many classes, workshops, shows and galleries later it is still my friend, waiting for me to indulge my imagination.

I bring to the clay my love for my New Mexico homeland, my admiration for it’s rock art, and ancient potters.  My addition of fired-in metal pieces has added a dimension to my work and allowed me to take liberties (flights of fancy) with the clay I was unable to before. 

All pieces are hand built from slabs, sometimes formed on pipes or slump molds.  Only colored clay slips are used, no glazes; and I give all pieces a light smoke-firing to give them a mottled, textured look.

I wish for my pieces to bring a smile, a sense of history, a feeling of grounding in Mother Earth.
