Nesting Seeds, was sculpted in Stoneware clay and finished with bright interior colors. While inspired by Seeds, It indeed has a hint of birdlife, as eggs hanging safely, out of harms reach in a natural basket.
As I create these succulent plant forms in clay I begin with a slab of clay to be formed, I then arrange root, vine or seed formations of the plant allowing it to develop organically as i shape it into a seemingly growing, fertile figure. I form the pods, working toward the heart of the plant, instinctually feeling my way toward the seeds, then revealing the budding form I envision there, and finally, the plant blossoms with rich vibrant, alluring color.
I have been working with clay and expressing myself through clay throughout my life. I am obsessed with detail, and focus on describing it in both the form and surface texture of my clay work.
I balance my work between sculpted and wheel thrown forms, often enjoying the challenges of combining the vastly different techniques. It is my joy in life to express my wonder of the world in clay.
