For the Love of the Vessel

Muse Gallery is temporarily closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Upcoming exhibitions have been postponed until it is safe to gather again in our space. As an artists' cooperative, our goal is to encourage and promote its members’ artistic expression.  The artists whose shows were cancelled will have the opportunity to preview their artwork in the windows of the gallery. We are committed to rescheduling their monthly solo show.

We look forward to renewing our shared experience of art between our members, artists, patrons and our community.

For the Love of the Vessel … revisiting the vessel tradition, where my journey began.

Initially, I created functional vessels to be held, used and cherished.  Later, I moved on to sculpture with its limitless possibilities for expression.  Now, I am revisiting and honoring the vessel as pure sculptural form.  This grounding in the tradition gives me freedom to soar.

My fascination with the natural world is my constant.  I am drawn to the transforming effects of wind, water and fire as they speak to the passage of time.

Working with white and red clay, my pieces are hand-built, pinched, coiled, carved, burnished and smoke-fired.    I am enjoying exploring the variety of techniques, clays and firings
