Jungle, Earthenware

Jungle, Earthenware

I spent close to two decades as a preschool teacher and loved to read and share children’s literature with my students. Now I get to do the same with my grandchildren. Although I have many favorite authors, this mosaic was inspired by author/illustrator Keith Baker’s “Who Is the Beast?”. His storytelling and use of such vivid graphic illustrations are so enjoyable.

I find it a privilege to have the opportunity to take a walk in the woods and observe the ever changing forms, patterns, textures and colors. I examined these forms in this ceramic mural.

Birch Trees 01, 02, 03        Earthenware

In this series of work titled Birch Trees, I was inspired by the winter landscape when nature is at its minimum.  The apparent patterns are more profound with little distractions.  While void of the leaves, the birch tree’s peeling, split bark is emphasized within the most basic colors.
