A ball of clay becomes a slab vessel and with this vessel as my canvas I make art.
My clay sculpture bowls reflect the characteristics of how I painted early in life. I put glazes on pottery with a vision of nature. When viewing my clay sculpture bowls the viewer sees a painting. It is my aim to have the glazes turn my functional sculpture bowls into a visual experience. The bowls are made from slabs of clay of various sizes. The edges of the slabs find their way around the bowl frame creating curvatures, rolls and byways to enclose / encase the bowl into a functional piece of art work. The structure of the bowl is majestic, bold and audacious. Bowls are decorative as well as functional works of art.
