Here are a few images from my solo show “Embodiment: Garments of Clay” at the Anna Leonowans Gallery in Halifax Nova Scotia. For more images of this show go to my What’s New page.
Workshop with me this summer in Lunenburg Nova Scotia- August 1-5. Contact Lunenburg School of the Arts for information on places to stay. It is a beautiful place to be in August!
A passion for color and pattern is what fuels my work as an artist. A love of clay grounds me in my work as a potter.
I derive meaning from textile design, whether metaphoric or functional, fabric as a layer is essential to the ideas behind the work I make.
It is as much a desire to make beautiful, useful things as it is a commitment to nurture a love of the arts and of the handmade in myself and others. To me, that duty is incumbent on a ceramic artist.
My love for creating handmade pottery is strongly influenced by the design techniques and patterns of textiles and fabrics. In my studies and as a working artist over the years, I have had the chance to be taught by, learn from, and work with some wonderful ceramic artists — their work also inspires me.
To me, pottery is meant to be used, to be enjoyed, to be a part of what makes a home personal. I welcome your comments or requests, whether you are interested in an individual purchase, a commission, or wholesale.
