Dear Earth,

Long before recorded history, we have used your healing clays externally and internally to cure illnesses, sustain life and promote general health. The “creation of man from clay” is a miraculous birth theme that recurs throughout your world. Now, for me, collecting various clays and fibers from my surroundings connects me with knowledge that has been lost. I think about things lost but I contemplate with hope. The authenticity and honesty of your raw materials contributes to my subject matter which asks us all to consider the earth and its resources. Wendell Berry reminds us “What we need is Here”.
