One of the primary joys for me is beach combing and finding various bits of treasures washed up on shore. I have spent many occasions doing this with my mother when she came to visit, and I will always treasure those memories of watching her watching the ocean. These beach treasures often find their way into my various art pieces, and I am always trying to find different ways to showcase them, whether encapsulated in the bottom of one of my raku clay pieces, incorporated into a hand sculpted clay "wave,", suncatchers, or assemblages. Often, the found piece dictates how it should be presented, such as the glorious piece of driftwood.
