Tribal Memories

This collection is both hand and heartfelt. By that I mean my hands have rolled, kneaded, formed and smoothed the metal clay pieces in additional to using tools.

I often imprint the clay with ferns and leaves from my garden as well as other artifacts found on my walks through the forests and on the beaches near my house. I love to accent the kiln fired metal components with rough but wearable textures and stones. All these materials are ageless echoing centuries long past yet have a modern twist of interpretation appealing to today’s “Tribe”.
