I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am largely inspired by structures in nature; layers in rock formations, crevices in dried riverbeds, knotty tree bark. These structures are translated in clay and used for the pots that originate from the wheel.

I saw it in art works I kept…See More
