What is Quartz Inversion?
No, it’s not a quart of milk standing on its head. It’s the point at which silica crystals in clay change their molecular structure during the rise and fall of temperatures in the kiln. Heat serves as a catalyst for permanent change. Very cool idea. I think of it as a metaphor for most things in life. The transformational power of art can change us at the very core. Our actions change the earth every day, for better or worse. The choices we make, the thoughts we have, and the words we say change us in every way at every moment--from the inside out. I like to think that I go through a quartz inversion on a regular basis....and once quartz inversion occurs, there is no going back.

Saturday morning.....show and tell


My time in the studio has been limited over the last couple of weeks, hence my absence from this blog. However, I did manage to produce two small pieces that I am pleased with. Still working on the concept of "less is more" and learning something new with every piece. I'm finding that I am most comfortable with a smaller tableau, which keep me from going all over the place with unnecessary nonsense.
