I began working with clay about 10 years ago with an attraction to it’s plasticity and texture.  As a psychotherapist, my work is emotionally responsive and imaginative in non-material ways.  I find that interacting with shapes that emerge from the process of handling clay to be a grounding and satisfying experience.  I love the exploration, the learning and the surprising results.

          The figurative pieces I’m showing emerged from the raku kiln last summer.  The more recent containers reflect the impact of Covid on what can be held.

          I am grateful to Lana for creating a space in which we learn from and support each other.  And I am honored to be in the company of accomplished artists as they hone technique and explore new media.
