Last year when my studio re-opened after the lock-down, I brought home some clay, mostly slab scraps. I cut the scraps into strips and rolled them into thinner strips which caused the edges to stretch and crack, creating the wonderful texture I wanted. I stood the strips on end, stacking multiple strips together to form the finished composition. These pieces were inspired by the striations that were revealed in mountains and hillsides when they were excavated to make the roads we travel on. These wall pieces will be available at studio #27, 32 Forest Drive in Napa during Open Studios Napa Valley September 18-19, & 25-26.
