The term “Spirit Form” evolved from a conversation I once had with an elderly Zuni potter in Taos, NM. She made magnificently painted ‘little’ pots, nothing over 2” in height or diameter, and many were half of that. She explained that the energy from each pot came from within as it was being made, and that the spirit within each pot could be shared by those who appreciated their beauty.
My intent in making these forms is to create designs that marry material with form, are truly monumental in scale, and that relate to we humans in a way that is intended to be mysteriously transformative. It is that mystery, that spirit of internal energy, that helps define them.
