“A great fascination with different-colored clays and their texture has led me to experiment and study clay for the past forty years. I have great reverence for the idea of craftsmanship and it is a factor I try to maintain. My work has developed from the respect I have for the material and the joy I experience when working with it. Making objects of integrity that could contribute to the traditions in pottery thousands of years old is a continuous responsibility”
“After living in Alabama for so many years, something of the Southern Culture was bound to influence me. Quilting has become a source of artistic integration.”
