AKA: Eliza’s Arts
I am a very eclectic potter. I have a deep love and respect for both the functional work of every day ware, to wildly eccentric and flamboyant ceremonial ware, to sculpture with no purpose other than inherent in it’s existence. I am influenced by my culture, nature, and curiosity. Organic forms, color, texture, delicacy and strength intrigue me, and help shape my idea’s.
I have taught ceramics to K-8th grade at Peninsula School Ltd for 3 decades; and I find children’s idea’s and work ethics (play) around creating, to be a significant education for me as an artist. Their willingness to take risks, create without attachment, laugh and cry, and see things in a new way, keeps me connected to why I, we, our species, benefits from creating something of beauty, or something of meaning.
