My work is texture inspired. Shadows, light play and layers add to the depth of my fiber art and practice.
This piece was made during a recent residency at The Art and History Museums in Maitland FL, right before leaving my hometown and moving to Knoxville TN.
I had felt a pull to move and study in the Appalachian art community.
I felt myself desiring new additions to my medium. Fiber, supplemented by clay and slip.. a change, a shift, a new layer.
I envisioned myself in this dress, in the woods outside of Knoxville, with macrame draped over my shoulders and the whole thing dipped and dried in clay clip left in the fragility of a ceramic greenware state.
