Artist Statement


Ceramic objects, by their very permanence, are keepers of memories and experiences. Reference to art history, a sense of place, concern for the environment inform my work.
 

About the work


How to capture the essence of a mountain stream, one that I have visited for so many years. The sound, colour, texture and sparkle of water as it rushes over smooth stones and the expiration of vegetation as it is sustained by Delatite River.

I respectfully acknowledge,
that I care for family, friends, and community
