"Wildlife is imperiled all over the globe through human greed and insensitivity.  I am letting this tiger express the anger and frustration over man being a taker and not a caretaker of our natural world.  The bond between human and nature is fractured.  Mankind does not seem to think of themselves as part of the whole.  The Mother calls but do you hear her voice?"  ~  Christy

"There is something about birds that speaks to me.  The contradictory aspects of their bodies intrigue me.  I find the exquisite detail of their claws and the patterning of their feathers very satisfying.  I perch them on my containers to encourage contemplation and conversation.  Currently I work solesly in porcelain and mix my own glazes.  I am fascinated with creating surfaces that mimic nature such as lichen, stones, or tree bark."  ~ Lucy

Stoneware.

"A tall, smooth-leather boot is used to make a mold from which a clay boot could be cast.  The boot mold is made in several sections.  The process involves using a rubber mold with an outer plaster mold for reinforcement.  The segments are then joined together by score and slip method.  The assembled negative mold is used to make a positive clay replica of part of the boot;  the remainder is sculpted.  Press mold corrugated boot sole and heel are made and affixed.  Sculpting the leaopard emerging from the boot is done next.  It is hollowed before being permanently attached in place atop the boot.  An extruded clay handle is attached as well;  it does double duty as the leopard's tail.  The tail's distal end is added in place at the base of the lacings on the front panel of the boot.  The spout projects from the leopard's left shoulder.  After all the structural details are completed, the work is allowed to dry thoroughly in air to greenware state.  It is then fired to cone 04.  Detailed embellishments with glazes and China paints cover the surfaces of both the leopard and the boot with a leopard-skin pattern."  ~  Meryl

Stoneware clay and glazes.

"This teapot is a thrid iteration in the evolving series begun with the prototypical free-form sewing machine representations, Treadle Kettle... It is hand-built from stoneware clay by a number of techniques.  These include slab construction (detachable teapot base as sewing machine base), press mold (machine body as main teapot chamber), slip cast mold (teapot lid as a spool of thread), sculpting (teapot details) and sculpted extruded clay (control wheel as teapot handle).  After construction is complete, the work is allowed to air dry thoroughly to its greenware state.  Once dry, the teapot is fired in an electric kiln to cone 04.  Black cone 5 glaze is then applied to all inner surfaces of theteapot to ensure the main chamber is watertight and therefore, functional.  Black underglaze is applied to all exterior surfaces and the sewing machine base.  Multiple additional firings are done after each layer of decorative silkscreened decals, lusters and China paints are added.

"This functional teapot is like the famous Chinese YiXing teapots.  It has a fine holed interior strainer and is unglazed to develop the flavor of tea over time.  Pre-heat the teapot before adding boiling water by rinsing it out with hot tap water.

The surface decoration is made by rubbing a cobalt mixture into the impressions of hand-carved, clay stamps  and was inspired by the confluence of cultures that traded on the Silk Road from China to Persia to the Mediterranean."  ~  Paul

"Art History has always been a passion of mine.  My work depicts famous works, artists, and artistic movements in vaious ways to illustrate their influence on the art world.  I mix artists in unexpected ways but there is always an artistic thread that binds them together.  My work is like a tribute to all the artists who have ever inspired me.  My work is also intended to put emphasis back on past masters in a fun, unexpected way.  I am a sculptor and a painter. I combine both by hand sculpting forms and painting them as if on a canvas.  Together I feel my two mediums combine to create my personal style."  ~  Noi
