My art and my life are not divided into components. I combine clays together as one unique whole personal aesthetic enjoyment. My life changed continually, whether I am ready or not, and my art changes along with my life. Every day, I seek a new consciousness and wholeness from my perspective.
My clay works speak of dreams, life and mystery.
As an artist, I am putting my thoughts and dreams out into my clay works. Beyond the gloss is memory, a part of my history. Our history is now always objective truth: memory shapes how we perceive it, and so the history is our truth.
‘Symbols, marks or geometric patterns inside or outside the surface,
some repeating themselves, overlapping one another,
a grid or circle, bathe with deep rich or warm earth tone glazes.
These are my personal marks,
and all have a special personal meaning to me.’ – Delora Bertsch
