My view as a sculptor is very diverse and yet very intimate. When I sculpt a particular object, I feel that I am not only creating a reticent object, but I am imputing a feeling into the subject which is being transferred from my hands to the subject. It has great emotions for me, and I believe these emotions and feelings are transformed to the object. I believe sculpting with clay, because of clay being a pliable medium, allows my hands and emotions to be transferred to the object. This for me is a very stimulating and satisfyiing art form.
