Artist Statement

All of the materials for this project are hand-gathered from the Pacific Northwest wilderness. The clay comes from Ravensdale, WA; Seattle, WA; and Bandon, OR. As much as possible, the materials remain in a raw, unadulterated state. Each piece is designed to change over time in response to environmental forces. In this way, the artist’s hand is usurped by the constant work of nature.
