The Spirit Within • ceramic works
in the Underground Gallery
In the beginning of my exploration of sculpture I worked in different media before I began working in clay. This show reflects my interest in symbolism and the indigenous art of the Americas, Southeast Asia, and Africa. I have been drawn to the organic and spiritual nature of indigenous art. The art that I make reflects a spiritual meditation I take each time that I sculpt.
Ceramics is my therapy. I am inspired by nature and faces. My primary focus in the past several years has been figurative. I see clay as transformative and I strive to share this transformation through my works.
