Heidi Clayton at her posttery wheelEach object is made to encourage the viewer to explore it with their hands; to feel the texture, weight, and overall essence of the piece. Each piece is taken from the building stage through the final glaze fire with attention to detail being a main priority resulting in a keepsake that is beautiful and functional. The function of each object is sometimes clear and sometimes ambiguous to allow for the individual to determine its purpose based on their own interpretation. By embracing the use of a handmade object the individual allows for a connection to be created between maker and user, giving a greater appreciation and purpose to the object.
