Connected. Tinka Jordy. 2007.


Rabbit. Gina Brobrowski. 1986.

Maker/Collector Statement

I have chosen Gina Brobrowski's Rabbit because the honest and fresh way she approaches clay is a major influence on how I approach clay. I got this rabbit from her years ago when we were both selling work at the Jazz Festival in New Orleans. (We are both from there.) In my opinion, she has been a major influence in the world of sculptural ceramics.

My piece, Connected, is a favorite as I feel it is a close attempt to what I aspire to in responding through clay, to our relationship with the earth and its inhabitants, and how that is reflected in my work.
