Title: Flared Vessel
Size: 12″h x 12″d
Light and Shadow: The carvings and pressings that I do create texture. To highlight I rub iron into the carving to pop the relief work creating light and shadow.
Statement: Having spent a lifetime working as a professional potter doing mostly functional work, I am now enjoying a time of play and experimentation. I enjoy interpreting the varying landscapes of the Southwest and translating them into clay objects. I am also working with shapes and alternative firing techniques. In the summer months I teach classes at the Ghost Ranch near Abiquiu, NM and I enjoy introducing my students to new ways to play with earth, water and fire.
