My "Undercurrent" series depicts a relaxed swaying seaweed-like growth. I suffer from both motion sickness and vertigo, yet my favorite vacations are at the shore and visiting aquariums. Possibly these deterrents are what feed my interest in movement. The surface sgraffitto technique is a perfect complement to my love of drawing. I carve through my glaze with a sharp metal tool to the clay beneath.
