About my Work

The exterior of my pieces have a sense of fragility, delicacy and being only temporary.  Ripples, fingerprints, kneaded clay – the marks of the making process – also remain intentionally visible on the exterior.  I find the Bible deeply inspiring as it speaks of God being our maker: we are the clay – He is the potter.  We have the maker’s imprint on us.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us…  Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”

The Bible 2 Cor 4:7;16

 

Each piece relates to this personal experience and for some of the larger vessels I even use the human form.

Every vessel I make is intended to draw your gaze to the interior.  Here you will see the bright refreshing tones of clean, renewing water – an echo of the cleansing and washing that Jesus brings into a person’s life by His sacrifice for us.

…whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.

 

The Bible John 4:14
