About the Event

Artist’s Statement:

Being born and raised within British Columbia has allowed me to experience the beauty of the

surrounding landscape and the thriving natural life.   When I am wandering in nature or hiking in the mountains, on these  journeys I often find myself collecting natural materials to incorporate  within my work such as branches for texture, or rocks that will be the  next ingredients in my glaze recipes.

I love every aspect of ceramics, from the intuitive  process and physicality of molding clay, to glaze technology.  I’m  fascinated with the unpredictability and excitement of glaze testing,  and astonished at how all ceramic materials come from the earth.

The wonders of nature and its vital role that it plays within our lives, is the driving force

and inspiration behind a lot of my work.  I’m  interested in the interconnected relationship that humans share with the  natural world.  My visual inspiration often stems from microscopic  perspectives in natural environments and botanical structures and  textures found in nature. With a strong eco-centric perspective, I am  continually exploring the natural world for meaning and beauty.  As my  passions and my creative process synchronize, my ideas develop and new  discoveries materialize within my art work.
