The other day I was thinking about my granddaughter Katie. She sings constantly, dances and plays music. You could not stop her, even if you wanted to. She is compelled to sing – it’s simply a part of her that cannot be unwound from who she is.
That is the way I feel about clay. I dream it and am driven to do it all the time. I can’t stop myself from constantly creating! Everything I look at inspires me to make something. In nature I see textures, colors, rhythms and compositions. As I drive past a hydrant or water pipes, I see colors and shapes that inspire me.
I love to educate people about clay, and am passionate about how it works; joining it together, kneading it and making it do what you envision - and then firing it.
