Inspired by the artist's own pet, Porter, who was rescued by her husband on Valentine's Day 2005, these hand-built stoneware dogs pose gleefully with feathered friends. Each dog begins with a series of clay cones and cylinders. As they are assembled, the poses emerge.The artist applies and carefully wipes away glazes on the surface, creating the rich character of a found object from years past. Each is unique; glaze and surface detail will vary.
