Artist's statement about their work: "For upwards of 50 years, I’ve been producing traditional wheel-thrown and hand-built functional and decorative pottery. Recently, I’ve embraced the joys and challenges of using clay in two dimensions for wall plaques and in partnership with another artist, a mural. For centuries, cultures throughout the world have used clay tiles to cover and decorate vertical surfaces such as walls. While traveling in Portugal and Spain, I was intrigued and inspired by the beautiful work of unknown craftsmen. In these pieces, I have chosen to use 'clay as my canvas'."
