As a clay artist, I am inspired and frequently surprised by clay’s versatility. I enjoy making use of texture, contrast, color and multiple elements to make forms from teapots to birdhouses that are esthetically pleasing and somewhat humorous. I frequently incorporate some reference to human form or movement. At other times, I simply enjoy the technical challenges of constructing a difficult form. Sometimes my art stops just short of kitsch, sometimes not, and it frequently leaves the observer wondering if the object is really made of clay.
