Statement

Clay is a great material to express my feelings, so that is why I love working with clay!  Clay provides the best expression of my feelings like an eternal idea, vision or form.  When I tear clay with my hands, I can discover the beauty of the natural texture within the clay.  So, I hope that my work reflects the natural curves and forms that I see in nature.  I enjoy being true to myself in my work and following the process of creation.
