Collista K

The idea of ceramics, as a process of both art and science, was introduced to me during nursing school. Since that day, most of my free time has been devoted to clay and the transformation it makes undergoing fire.
Inspiration for my work often comes from the animals and organisms that cross my path while in nature. My devotion to texture and commitment to balanced work comes from an encounter that I had working as a nurse. While caring for a blind woman in the emergency department, she explained the basis of her world; visual esthetics played no part in her choices, her world was based on sound and texture.
So I hope that when you hold one of my pieces in your hands you can close your eyes and conjure up a tale.
