Some Tribute horses at Tweed

Taking history as a starting point my equine vessels and sculptures have multi-surface decorations and expressions that suggest layers of social and political meaning. Layered glazes, such a magnesium crawl glaze, Cobalt oxide and barium based slips, are applied with broad strokes to enhance texture. The surface cracks and crazing convey the difficult journeys of the horse and riders spirit from the past to the present. My work also references feminine connections with horses through the relationship of the shape of vessels/forms and their decorative elements.
