Bisque-Fired Work

This collection of my work is of the purest style. The individual clay pieces are handformed  using a wide variety of  tools. I find objects from my kitchen,  our tool shed, flea markets, antique shops or simply use my fingers‚Ķanything with textures!

The small clay pieces are bisque fired in my kiln and left white and unglazed to allow the textures and undulations of the clay to be the most prominent aspect of my abstracted interpretations.
