I took my first clay sculpture course in 2016 with Naidee Changmoh. It was one of the most magical and satisfying things I have ever done. It was the perfect way to channel my inner imaginative realm into earthly form. I smile just writing about it. Unfortunately many of my more refined images were lost while transitioning files from one place to another. These ones, however, really capture the playfulness of the whole experience. I ended up with a Dionysian inspired tribe of magical beings. A maenad, a lynxit nymph, and two baby bears. They are currently resting happily in the lush beautiful gardens of my home in Bali.

kiln fires proved a little too hot, yet beauty endured and she came out looking like an ancient relic


Two Baby Bears
these baby bears were such a delight
listening to the language of the flowers
comes from earth, exists in earth, goes back to earth
Bear Hugs
look at those little claws
Lynxit Nymph
the muse of muses – a silent oracle that bridges worlds
