I am a practitioner of cultural expression making objects that are part of my story. What I create will be left as evidence that I was. I believe the work I do and the journey I'm on will be added to the story of clay. I pay homage to my ancestors, the greatest of navigators, and the first clay workers of the Pacific. They left a map, a guide for us to follow, so we will always know where we're from, where we are and where we're going. We are all clay, the body of the mother.
