7 x 4 x 11 in.
My sculptural work mines my life experiences – growing-up, mothering, loss, aging and the fragile beauty of now – to not only better understand my humanity, but also to remind viewers of theirs. My ceramic forms reference those found in nature – seeds, bones, stones and fossils – artifacts of the living world. By enlarging them to elevate their beauty and impact, they become potent metaphors for themes I aim to explore. In addition to studio work, my practice includes journaling, reading, appreciating poetry and spending time outdoors.
