Two main passions in my life from a young age have been art and animals. During my studies in ceramics I fell in love with the alternative firing technique of using horse hair as surface design. Being an avid horse lover, I experimented with my horse's hair and made vases for friends using their animal's hair. From my wonderful friends and family sharing my work, I was asked more and more to make artwork to serve as a memorials for pets. All different types of hair can be used: cat, dog, horse, human, even feathers. Each piece has unique and spontaneous characteristics.This process has allowed me to connect my passions, and provide special memorials for those who love their animals.
