Rebecca Roberts' Recent Work
Every day I am
amazed to find that after over thirty years, clay continues to challenge
me and teach me about itself, but more importantly about myself.
My love of the handbuilding process continues to thrive. I make functional
tableware and pieces that are more sculptural. The dance back and
forth between the two types of work keeps my interest in both alive.
Nature and my life’s process are sources of ideas and inspiration.
always love “the bowl” and my recent dialog with clay has led me to focus
on it again, not as a strictly functional object, but as the concept of
universal container and symbol of nurture. It’s the process more
than the resulting object that I love best. Marks of this process
are always evident in my pieces so that in a way each piece tells the story
of its creation.
