I relate to clay primarily through touch. Sitting at the wheel, I love the feeling of the clay changing shape in my hands. Working in both porcelain and stoneware clays, I enjoy their differing personalities. The robust strength of stoneware emboldens me, and the qualities of light and translucency in porcelain thrill me. The lure of clay lies in its responsiveness and malleability. The chance to change a shapeless lump of earth into a form with grace and beauty is fresh each time I sit down at the wheel.
