Chris on Her Art
I enjoy exploring various mediums such as ceramics, fiber, and paper. It’s a challenge for me to stick to one medium for very long as I am interested in so many.
My primary medium is clay. I prefer form over function but endeavor to make each piece useful and pleasing to the hand as well as the eye. Whether a thrown bowl, handbuilt vessel or sculpted doll part, each effort has the participant as well as the observer in mind.
My inspiration comes from Nature as I spend a good deal of time being intimate with Her. I attempt to show the spirit of the subject in my work and at the very least delight the viewer.
