We are pleased to introduce Bonnie, as she writes: “My work is inspired and informed by myth, dreams, and symbols. Most often I explore in my art themes of home, childhood, loss, nature, and the feminine experience. In these small sculptures, I work intuitively to reveal something of the inner world of each figure. Each piece is made of fired earthenware or porcelain clay with applied glazes, stains, paints, and the occasional found object.” (above, Watchdog, 13x11x5,” earthenware, glaze, paint, found objects, 2011).
