“The California coast is rich in clay, minerals, and dye plants. As a potter and natural dyer, I am interested in the versatility of these materials as clay body, dye, and paint. I create color palettes derived from specific landscapes where I source my materials. My interest in harvested clay and foraged dyes, rather than commercially processed clay and synthetic dyes, stems both from this idea of site-specific color as well as the responsibility of making. These are objects made from California earth.”
