I have always been a storyteller of earth, born on the edge of farmland, earthed on the western prairies and wilded in the mountains of Alaska. As ranger, teacher, farmer and artist she has spoken through me. Now as ceramic artist those stories take shape in form, both functional and sculptural. Edward Abbey, Georgia O'Keefe, Pablo Neruda and Catherine Hyde inform my work, as do Inuit sculptors and indigenous storytellers. My work is made from local clay that has been hand dug, hand formed and hand carved to fit you hands like an old friend, because that's what earth is, and old friend. Our oldest, truly.
Moon bowls, earth shells, soul bowls and crescent plates, made to be held. If you listen carefully there are stories for you to discover.
