Marine Life

This newest series is an outgrowth of each preceding group of work. Bowls and vases are functional. I think of the art tiles as clay paintings, each perfectly displayed on a vertical surface – wall or easel. The common thread among each is a sculptural application of coils in flowing organic lines and shapes, an “additive” process that makes me think of re-emerging life. I use two clays for these pots, white and a red brown with deep mineral speckles. The white gives me brighter colors, while the speckled red brown adds depth and automatic texture.
