Ceramics
Alumnus, 1953
I have a great deal of trouble talking about where my ideas come from because I'm not sure myself. I may start drawing or playing with shapes when suddenly an idea or a group of ideas will suddenly come to me. Something just clicks in my brain. When I start working in clay the shapes I have drawn may undergo a change because of the clay's limiting qualities or sometimes the clay seems to guide me in a direction I hadn't thought of. I never know what the final details on the surface of the clay will look like until I see the finished shape. I may start carving on one part or applying clay pieces to an area and this will suggest the next step.
