garden sculptures

My Ceramic work is hand built with the emphasis on form and texture, inspired by natural forms and the landscape. I am interested in making work that shows evidence of the hand of the artist. I am not interested in smoothness and perfection, but in organic form and texture. I hand build using pinching, coiling and slabs and molds. I use a variety of clays and, with found objects, mark, texture and carve the work to achieve organic and sculptural forms.
