Title:  Mi Amor en el Camino de Taos

Size:  27″h x 14″w x 10″d

Light and Shadow:  Shadowed memories come to light on her face.

Price:  $3,500

Statement:  In 1998, I returned to my love of working with clay discovered during three years of high school ceramics, retraining myself on the pottery wheel and sculpting. After the end of a 21-year marriage and undergoing treatment for breast cancer, to follow the clay became my mantra and life path. Mythic themes, archeological artifacts, nature, and the human form capture my interest. There is for me a fascinating relationship working in clay and sculpting bones. Ceramic sherds and bones reveal our cultural and evolutionary history.

Basically self-taught, I apprenticed with American and New Zealand trained potters and worked as a clay arts instructor tor 12 years. From 2005 through 2016, I worked from my Aspen Vignettes studio at my gallery. The Pottery Studio Gallery in Littleton, Colorado, where I represented over 50 Colorado artists. Since my move in 2017 to Chimayo, New Mexico, I work from a sunny home studio surrounded by lush foliage-“an acequia runs through it.”

Title:  Round Trip

Size:  3″h x 14″d

Light and Shadow:

Dusk is a particularly exquisite time of the day. The clouds take on a distinct light, that surrounds us and colors the sky. Swallows come out from the shadows of porch eaves and muddy nests, their tiny bodies dart around so beautifully. I have always been mesmerized by this early evening nature poem.

Price:  $128

Statement:  I love clay, from porcelain whites to deep reds and browns. I love it all. Since I am not able to truly devote myself to being a ceramic artist with the time I would like to, I feel as though I am preparing myself for my next life!!!  My inspiration comes from the same forces that seem to inspire most artists, the sublime beauty of nature. The patterns, the colors, the textures and the light. Our earth is the divine mother of such exquisiteness that to be alive is to be in love with her. I learned to throw in Spain from a master potter and continue to be enamored of the wheel. I also enjoy sculpting and hand-building with its very different clay experience. I enjoy wood and soda firings and the enriching experiences clay continues to provide.
