Delila, Raku, 30" x 17" x 3"

Art states "I have been a teacher and a working artist all my adult life. As a ceramic potter, I find the raku process of finishing the clay exciting, dramatic, and unique. Its metallic glazes and smoky black clay bodies lend themselves well to my unconventional, non-utilitarian forms. My vases, covered jars and abstract pots are thrown on the wheel and then altered, often with the addition of vivid sculptural features. To expand beyond the limitations imposed by the potter's wheel, I have mounted my raku tiles in wall hangings. These wall hangings can include pieces salvaged from discarded chairs, beds and tables. I have also expanded to include horsehair pottery."
