A special clay-like material is the base & is air-dried. This allows me to incorporate mixed media: bark, metals, glass, tile, earthstones, etc. I use a basic slab pottery technique to form the material. I also like to push the limit on what can be done to maintain beauty, interest, flow, & depth, yet focus on design & not get carried away. Only small hand tools are used to make the body of work truly one of a kind one at a time.
