" Through time and pressure beauty is created, we mine the soul to find the precious elements. 

  Life refines and polishes our history and the choices we have made.

  The cartography of our lives etched with experience and memory.

  The study of clay has influenced the use of surface and texture .”

                 

 “Soul over substance – and the acceptance of the elements over us all.” - Jeff Durrant

"Artists have no choice but to express their lives. They have only, and that not always, a choice of process.

This process does not change the essential content of their work in art, which can only be their life." - Anne Truitt
