"Fish Amulets"
Artist's Statement
"For the past twelve years, I have been exploring how various materials have worked in combination with clay. Often, found objects inspire me. Perhaps the shape of an object or its materials meaning will lend itself to symbolic narrative - storytelling plays a large role in the development of my work. Often these pieces give me an opportunity to reflect on issues around personal history, culture, shared values, my hopes and dreams."
