Although my fascination with clay started at a very early age, it was decades later that this medium proved to be a lifesaver for me personally. Today, my ”Ceramic heART Wall Sculptures are colorful expressions of my authentic, raw, naked, vulnerable self. This STRENGTH of courage, wisdom and love, has allowed me to experience this fabulous, wondrous, and sometimes very scary, and painful, precious, human life. Although I still occasionally create fine, functional, whimsical wares, my Ceramic Heart Wall Sculptures hold my true passion and give voice to the whole spectrum of being human while shining with more than a modicum of timelessness and humor.
My original, one-of-a-kind Ceramic Heart Wall Sculpture are all hand-formed and hand-painted by me, with low fire colorful glazes. Crystal glazes and under-glazes are also used to add to the depth and uniqueness of a piece. Although I may repeat a design in a smaller Ceramic Heart Wall Hanging, all pieces are hand-built unique on to themselves. Most of my ceramic pieces go thru at least two firings which can reach a temperature of 2000 degrees. Sometimes I risk a third or a fourth firing if the piece does not speak to me after the second firing. I also embellish a few with lower temperature metallic over-glazes for brilliance of gold and luster of rainbow.
