DEBORH HORNBAKE

 I use traditional carvers’ hand tools, hammer and chisels. The design of each artwork incorporates the natural beauty and form. of the wood, clay and stone . In my ceramic work, a variety of hand building techniques are used, both slab and hand coiling. With wood, the existing shapes and textures often inform the figure that emerges. It is in cooperation with and respect for the materials of this world that this artwork is produced.
