Artist’s statement

I chose to work in clay because I wanted to make sculptural forms. I explored organic forms from nature such as seed pods. The title of my series refers to the traditional dancing of the Vietnamese tribe, the Cham people. My forms reminded me of their beauty and movement.

Influencing artist: Henry Moore
