A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST ABOUT MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUE: "My lace-textured ceramics are how I create my own gardens honoring my mother's love of gardening and lace. Using mifire stoneware clay, I create slabuilt and wheel thrown canvases of simple forms. The modest shapes allow the lace to be focus of my work. I receive my lace from friends and find it in antique shops, fabric shops, and online. I impress the lace into the clay surface, then highlight the texture with colored under-glaze and glazes. The breaking of the glazes over the lace pattern accentuates the natural beauty of the clay underneath. Together the lace impressions, clay, and glaze, capture a moment in time; like putting a memory in stone. With clay, I can create heirlooms, gardens and memories that can last lifetimes."
