PORTFOLIO » Poetry Boxes

My Poetry Boxes are an ongoing series, using found objects, ceramic, glass, paint, collage material, encaustic, plant materials and ceramic objects that I make. As part of the process in collecting the materials and arranging them , my mind finds words which I turn into prose or poetry and I include these bits of writing somewhere in the piece , either visually or attached to the back. I enjoy the process of collecting the materials as much as I enjoy making them.
