Artist's Statement: I began making these vessels after spending a week at the beach with my family. At the time, I did not realize how deeply the pattern I saw during that vacation would affect my clay work. I looked at shells, sand, water ripples and even the repetition of the trees in the forests we explored. Maybe, it was the good feeling of that vacation that I am trying to recapture in these pieces, or maybe, I am trying to make more permanent in the solidity of fired clay some of the ephemeral and always changing beauty that happens and disappears in the natural world.
