Stoneware, hand-sculpted,clay sea Turtle merging with human face. This Piece is from 2008 and is from the "Emergence" series that began in 2005, just prior to hurricane Katrina. Initially, the idea for this sculptural series came to me in a dream prior to hurricane katrina's visitation. In it, I was peacefully swimming and a large Turtle suddenly swam up to me, started me and nudged me to pay attention. Then, I was told to have no Fear for we are ONE. I continue to experiment with new glazes and twists on the original idea. One of the first pieces received the Juror's choice award at the OHR Rising museuem exhibition.
