Yukon River

Beautiful and Wild

Beautiful and Wild

The Yukon River has always been a source of fascination for me, both beautiful and terrifying. It’s full of contradictions—its colours, its beauty, its wildness, and its danger. It brings fresh water and supports life in the Yukon, but it's also wild and frigid and it can be deadly.

Tangibly, the river is made up of layers: the riverbed, the water, the surface and its reflections. There are things that are seen and things that are hidden. It’s always moving and changing. And there are other layers as well—layers of history, occupation and how it has been used sustenance, transportation, commerce, and recreation for millennia.

I am experimenting with altered forms, which means carving into the clay, stamping the piece with things like leaves and rocks, and cutting thrown pieces into new and interesting shapes.
