In response to a need to communicate all sorts of intergenerational stories and customs, stories were expressed in my first book– Women of the Book. Once started, I couldn't stop. Books with words and pages, wonderful spaces from the face of the page now in negative because pages have two surfaces, concavities waiting to be filled. The words are the names of the women in my family, stream of consciousness murmurings, meditations at a moment in time or on my mother's life. The formal elements of a page are themselves inspiring, writing in clay instead of doing calligraphy on paper forces a new understanding of the construction and form of letters. With many thanks to Lloyd J. Reynolds for the understanding of letters, page format, and book binding, I translate book into clay, page into sculpture. Working the front and then the back of a page and the relationships from page to page enable a complexity of ideas to develop that cannot be expressed in a single form sculpture. As always the language of imagery revolves around woman forms.
