An ongoing series of female torso sculptures inspired by the sea life, images I capture during my beach walk ritual. I am inspired by the beautiful Pacific Ocean and our local Cardiff Reef. My search to connect with nature compels me to walk on the beach at sunrise, transferring that mysterious consciousness when I return to my ceramic studio. My sculpture series SHE-Sea Wisdom features ceramic female torsos and coral-inspired clay shapes. The body’s opalescent form speaks to the mystery of being, and deeply textured coral patterns with real gold accents symbolize nature’s preciousness.
