All pieces are high-fired stoneware. Functional pieces are food safe and are made with lead free clay and glazes.
Creating this sculpture was very rewarding. Usually, before sculpting, I have to plan ahead.
I would need to construct an armature, then consider any issues with undercuts and parting
lines that could come up during the mold-making process. Not very creatively spontaneous.
This time I let the clay take me where it wanted to go. Since I just grabbed some clay and
went into it without any sort of plan, or idea of what I wanted to create, this piece almost
felt as if it made itself. I especially like its surface textures and how the 'patina' accents them.

Mythical Goddess of Pre-Dawn
Functional as dinnerware or display as sculpture
The billowing train of her gown sweeps up the stars in the pre-dawn,
ushering in the nautical dawn's first light and the start of each new day.
This imagery serves to remind us that each day starts anew and offers us fresh
opportunities to gather happiness, wisdom and fond memories to last us a lifetime
