It makes good sense to use clay for pots, vases, pitchers, and platters, but I like to have things both ways. I make things that could be functional, but I really want them to be considered works of art.

An earlier work of mine, inspired by Betty Woodman

...and then some images of her work here below

Whilst preparing a presentation that I will be giving this week at the Cape Craft and Design Institute on my work and what inspires me, I was reminded of the strong influence of the work of Betty Woodman. This video of one of her installations gives a wonderful insight into the logistics of such a project.
