"I work in clay because I love the metamorphosis from a lump of clay to an object that will become a part of
someone’s life.  Clay is an exceptionally tactile medium, and my work is meant to be experienced as much by
one’s sense of touch as by one’s sense of sight.  All of my work is functional and meant to held – indeed,
caressed – and to produce unexpected sensations from form and surface.  I alter shapes, impress patterns,
layer surfaces and carve designs to create a sensual experience from a purely utilitarian one." - Julie Buyon
