Artist Statement

This work is driven by a deep personal interest in the science of stones, rocks, geologic process and the shaping of the physical earth. There is spirituality as well as beauty in something so magnificent and so unspectacular as the earth beneath our feet. Rocks, sand, and dirt can convey a sense of sacred space. A stone worn smooth by the tides can be soothing to the soul as well as the hand.

 

Spirituality dwells in the very act of making. If one is open to it, each part of the creative process can be a step in the long inner journey towards transcendence. Repetitive action becomes meditation; each piece becomes a prayer. This work is a reflection of my own inner journey, a consecration of both the mundane and profound, and my search for transcendence.

Whether cascading down the front, or draped down the back, the possibilities are nearly endless. The human torso provides us with one of our largest canvases, while still keeping body as site.

ECU Symposium

What a weekend! We had our long awaited symposium "Material Topics" this weekend. We had metals students from University, Appalachian State, Winthrop, VCU, and even someone from SCAD.

I think our final count was up around 100 people!



The whole thing kicked off Friday night with an opening for a fantastic show between ECU… Continue

Dear Liz:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am glad you joined us.

There is always a lot of activity on the site, so it would be great if you could upload some images of your work for all of us to see. When you do so, please upload the pictures via the PHOTO link on the main webpage. That way your images appear in the main slide show and on your personal page. Thank you.

Also, please feel free to add your comments to the blog/discussion topics that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network and find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

Again: Welcome !
