Using clay with mixed media, I create conceptual/ ceremonial vessels, sculptures, and installations,

I am inspired by artifacts and magical belief systems of ancient cultures.
I hope that my artworks with written instructions will invite you to participate in real or imagined personal celebrations and ceremonies.
