Art has been my passion and comforter for a very long time. Watercolor, acrylics, wood carving in 2D and 3D, block printing, the list goes on. Recently, ceramics began by combining my block carvings and clay. This evolved into ceramic relief carving. Then came wheel throwing and slab building. That smooth, cool, supple clay had me hooked.
Purchasing several “How To” books on ceramics came next. One on pinch-pots stirred my imagination. I began making animals and then one morning, while still in bed, I envisioned my chickens and roosters, which I fondly call ‘critters.’ They wanted to be useful, so I made them into banks.
I hope you enjoy these whimsical critters.
