Rebecca Roberts

I love the feel and smell and responsiveness of clay.
I love its honesty, the way it can be manipulated,
but lets you know exactly where its edges are.
I love how the skin of clay stretches and splits
without breaking when you bend it at just the
right moment.
I love the idea that the clay I work with was once
the earth we stand on.
I love that it’s been around forever.
I love the process of constructing a form and the
resulting organic quality of a handbuilt piece.
I love how each person’s work reflects their own
body and spirit.
I love how the clay can reach into my unconscious
and cause me to make things I don’t understand
why I make until later.
