Artist's Statement

I graduated from Mount Allison University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1993…..then my art education really began. I have studied veterinarian charts, artist references, and my own horses, to get the feel of the equine bodyline and musculature. I do not take weeks to make a sculptured piece. The porcelain clay itself allows me a maximum of 2 hours before the added pieces are too dry to adhere through the bisque firing process.  The raku process consists of putting the metallic glaze on the bisque ware, firing the kiln to 1800 degrees F. then reaching into the kiln and removing the white hot piece to a metal can filled with combustible material.  The fire that ensues develops the metallic look to the glaze and by quickly covering the can air-tight and letting the sculpture cool sets the glaze in that metallic aspect. Each raku process is individual and cannot be repeated. To raku porcelain clay is at times frustating because of the breakage, but I find the gorgeous color that appears on the bright white surface is worth the effort.
