Organic forms Fruiting Bodies


My sculptures are inspired by organic natural forms such as shells, rocks, plants, and nuts. I tend to work on themes, which have included vessel-like forms I called  Fruiting Bodies and Wild Blooms which are decidedly unfeminine floral forms. At present I am working on tall standing forms that explore movement and rhythm and that have a strong sense of the coast. I am using slips and oxides to increase the dramatic potential. In many ways, the sculptures embody experience of change, re-growth and the reinvigoration of identity. They are strong statements, and work equally well in the home or garden.
