I continue to find influence in the things that surrounds my everyday life. I love to garden and watch what grows from the earth. The joy of earth tones in nature extends to my clay. A piece from my latest collection includes this organic petal bowl. The rolling out of the stoneware, shaping it into a free form bowl is so satisfying. AND THE GLAZES!!! Deep greens and ocean blues, finished off with a smashing metallic. It is truly like Christmas Day every time I open the kiln. I love everything about the process. I finish each piece with a signature dragonfly, which symbolizes the wisdom of transformation and adaptability.
Spring has truly sprung here in Alabama where we are blessed with natural beauty in abundance. That renewing of nature and its many earth tones has been my inspiration for this piece and many others in the collection.
