The work of my peers inspires me to try other avenues of technique when working with clay. So today I may do sculpture and tomorrow I will find my self-sitting at my wheel throwing mugs. The following day may find me trying to fabricate a mould that will allow me to create the perfect bowl form, more than one time. Another day will find me working with my brushes trying to let my inner self-push the boundaries of the three-dimension form that is on my workbench in front of me.
I do want to gain recognition for my efforts, not necessarily for monetary gain, but for the satisfaction that I created something that the public enjoys and wishes to own. I make art for the joy of filling the world with objects that I create and that I feel are beautiful.
I consider myself a visual artist who; slips in and out of the functional world, researching in the experimental glaze arena, dabbling in the painting process and playing in the modeling and sculpting disciplines. I will allow my feelings to decide where I will go with clay-art today
