January 26 - February 26, 2017
The inspiration for my ceramic sculpture is the natural world around me. I moved to Louisiana 18 years ago from Michigan and since that time have used my observations and love of gardening as my library of forms. I equate the care and time needed to have a healthy garden to human relationships that also require nurturing and protecting to flourish. In my recent installations of flowers and sculptural cage forms I think of the work as surrounding and protecting the viewer like arms wrapped around you.
The ultimate goal for me would be to have my work create the same sense of awe and wonder that is achieved when seeing something amazing in our natural world.
