For me, working with clay and the ceramic firing process is a form of alchemy, a process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary, sometimes in a way that cannot be explained. Once the lid of the kiln is closed, there is little control over what will happen during the firing process.
My most recent body of work is inspired by imagery of early Goddess figures. Each collage is made organically as I follow my intuition on what each Goddess is interacting with. The tiles are named once the firing process is complete.
