I hand-build forms out of clay. This main ingredient, the "dirt of this earth", might find itself imprinted with shells from the oceans, inlaid with volcanic rocks, pierced by bullets or by clinkers from a friend's forge. The creative process spans techniques from deliberately selecting material, design and firing technique to produce a somewhat predictable product, to forming intuitively what is felt at a deeper level and begs to be expressed. All creations are narratives, telling metaphorical tales.
"...simple clay is transformed,
and something new is called
to stand out
like a planet newly born."
excerptes from a poem written for the artist by Steward Walker
