“My recent pieces have evolved from an exploration of the textural tool marks in my thrown work to a growing interest in the larger scale markings of the landscape. I first looked at the domestic tilling of the soil and the way patterns occur. I found a certain beauty in the way orderly rows would follow the natural contours of the mountainside. Next I began thinking about marks and textures that also reveal a sense of order but come from natural occurrences. The level horizon line left from a swollen river, the changes due to tide or erosion. These etchings of the earth become a type of clock or calendars that is free from numerical order but gives a much stronger sensation of time and place.”
