  7. The Sum of what we are 2013
    Each box 2.5" by 4.5" Earthenware, glaze, archival digital print
    Early pioneers brought very few possessions to this country, but most brought a linen chest filled with family treasures, photos, fabric including hand-made lace. The cell-like structure of lace metaphorically delineates our genetic, cultural and spiritual heredity. The chests contain the sum of what we are, what inspires us and sustains us.

  9. Vessel/Cradle-Berceau/Vaisseau, detail
    Large boat 13"long by 7.5" wide by 18" high
    Vessel/Cradle - Berceau/Vaisseau functions as metaphor for all that is unseen, the invisible force steering the mind, body, spirit. The vessel, associated here with the masculine, supports, protects, transports, while the cradle, associated with the feminine and the place of origin, nurtures, sustains. The vessel’s hull guards, while the lid/sail nurtures.
     
  10. She/Elle series 2011
    Earthenware with embedded doily, stains
    Homage to the faceless women of our past who have gone unrecognized during the centuries. They toiled mostly in the background. Generations of Canadians would be impoverished without their passion, conviction, nurturing and devotion.
