Inspiration through Exploration

I’ve been spending nearly every weekend for the past few months out of cell service, in the mountains, clambering over rocks, slipping into swimming holes and enjoying every sunset. It’s been good. Really, really good.

It’s also been inspirational for my work. I truly believe that inspiration comes through exploration- it fuels everything I make. And I realized that I hadn’t created an In the Field installation in a year and it is definitely time to create another. So here are a few of the things that I’ve been looking at on these weekend adventures into the wilderness. Lots of rocks to be sure; rock formations made from humans, made from time, rocks that give life to some creatures and take it from others.

While I’m still not sure of how these images and this inspiration will translate into a ceramic installation yet, I know that there is something here that intrigues. I’ll keep you posted as new work develops…
