Prairie Artifacts

Prairie Artifacts

The objects in an on-going collection called Prairie Artifacts are both functional and sculptural and are part of a larger fantasy narrative set in a Canadian prairie context.  It is a clay story of make-believe creatures and objects created from my imagination which uses the colour and history of the Canadian prairies, where I grew up, as an aesthetic base.   In many cases, the design of a piece is not plotted out when I begin, but during the process of making, the shapes, souls and history of the creatures and pots are realized.
