Artist Statement"Pottery and energy work are so interconnected. I use elements of the earth, air, fire, and water in my work. The hand built and wheel thrown pieces I create either have symbols of the west coast or healing elements such as Reiki or Chakras. Each hand made plaque or tile piece I make has it's own energy and is unique.
In the last few years I have taught pottery classes through our local community school. The energy of the students I have met has taught me a lot and moved me in new directions. It is a great feeling to pass this joy of 'playing in mud' on to others."
