Lulu Red

7.5 in x 4.75 in
Thrown and altered earthenware, deeply trimmed ridges. Low fire glazes, fired multiple times.

Artist's Statement: I translate the essence of things that intrigue me. Personalities, plant and animal life, technology, a circus and music all play through my head as I work. I'm looking for movement, a posture or a small event to reveal itself in a simple abstracted form. The apparent precariousness of the tallest spires speak to me of reaching and balance, success and failure.
