Artist Statement by Barbara Clark:
"I design and make hand-carved ceramic tiles that reflect my love of the natural world. From an early interest in relief printing the transition into carving tiles felt natural. I was further attracted to tiles by their utility. They allow us to integrate art into our daily lives on a fireplace, as a trivet, in a shower or kitchen. I feel that this is a fortunate time to be an artisan with the resurgence of interest in the hand-made. I enjoy and take great care in every step of the process; from idea, through drawing, carving and kiln to a finished piece to enliven your home."
