Artist Statement

"Damariscotta" is a clay sculpture that was inspired by the oyster middens found along the banks of the tidal estuary that is the Damariscotta River in Midcoast Maine and left there by Native Americans.  I was inspired by the beauty of the delicate, flaking layers of shells that have survived for thousands of years.

In making Damariscotta, I hand-formed pieces of clay and placed them in thin layers to replicate my vision of the bleached oyster marvel.
