Artist Spotlight @ Alberta Craft Council with Connie Cooper

As time goes on, I find that it is important to slow down, to
simplify and keep to what is important to me. As my life is reflected in
what I make, the pieces are simple, with less surface decoration and
more attention to form, texture, colour and material interaction in
firing.

A trip to Iceland, where the landscape is igneous,
textural and pristine, has renewed my interest in geology and landscape.
Mined from the earth and transformed by fire and heat, clay and glaze
minerals were the first materials synthesized by man. Drawn in part by
this interest to work with clay, my intent is to reference and reflect
this inspiration
