Where do clay and inspiration and words come from ?

All my life I have collected rocks and pebbles.  I learned that both my mother and my grandmother saved cool rocks and stones. Everywhere I traveled I carried this weighty objects with me.  I also collected shells and fossils once, sand from Mexico.

And now I work with clay.  It’s wasn’t hard to learn my way of expressing myself in this medium.  I love words.  Words I collect, also, but they weigh nothing, and so are easier to haul around over the years.

My first love was writing.  I think clay seduced my by the ease with which I found my voice in it.  But there are things I want to say that are not easily articulated in mud.
