Sgraffito and Mishima

From the beginning I have always believed drawing to be the foundation of the process of making, creating objects. I use sgraffito and mishima techniques to develop drawing ideas in clay. It is also a respite from the decisions of surface and color. Mark making is very meditative for me while I work in the studio.
