OK - this was last week's, but you got this week's on Wednesday (keep up please! ).
I finished up the lace cuffs shown on the desk and delivered them to the amazing and wonderful Karen of Bird On A Wire on Main Street (just up from Broadway) yesterday. There are three types of silver cuff and one with some copper stitching swirling over the lace. Take a peek before they go (because I forgot to take a photograph!).

I work with clay because of the many things I can create from it. Whether it be wheel-thrown or hand-built, the surface can be satin-smooth or the texture of sharp lava, and the colours bold and bright or dark and moody. My inspirations come from nature with its ceaseless textures and ever-changing colours. I want people to pick up and explore the textures of my work with their hands. The firing of the clay is open to many options as well and I enjoy Raku and Pit Firing with their unexpected and wonderful results. My current work is constructed in a way to show how the pieces are assembled, and for the user to enjoy the colours and varied textures in something as simple as everyday dinnerware.

Canada Inspires Us:
"Future of Attawapiskat was inspired by a Vancouver Sun article and photo of the Attawapiskat reserve regarding the struggles of the band and the government to achieve a basic standard of living on this neglected reserve. Although the photo portrayed the cold bleakness and desperation of the isolated community, my eye was drawn to the warm colours and interesting shapes of the dilapidated structures. Reading about the convoluted issues made me realize that there is a depth and complexity in the situation that I tried to portray through interesting textures created with used dryer sheets, frayed cotton, tissue paper and excerpts torn from the Vancouver Sun article itself. I deepened and warmed the original colours that had drawn my interest and set the whole in varying shades of white. The final flecks of gold indicate a flicker of hope for progress."
