I am a fashion designer and my medium is clay. I infuse each sculpture with style and motion; the imaginary body and stance are as important to the piece as is the design of the "garment." I find that, regardless of medium, there is a continuum in my approach to design. The garment’s relationship to the body, the evolution of a proportion that enhances the body, and line as it defines an elongated form have emerged as constants whether working with cloth or clay.
