Durham, NC | Exhibiting Since 1992

In the 45 years that I have been working with clay, I have been able to examine the extraordinary capabilities of clay.  My first and primary love is the creation of pottery for everyday use.  I continue to pursue different ways to present adornments for the table and home with new and exciting forms and glazing techniques.  Sculpture, however, has given a voice to my spirit.  My journey with clay sculptures has taken em on explorations of prehistoric goddess figures and their implied wisdom, spirituality,  politics, social injustice, and simply the beauty and power of the female form.
