Ceramic is Cynthia's favorite medium because it combines artistic expression with a fine technical knowledge of the material. As a ceramist, their process is as rational as it is intuitive and creative. Their life journey has led them to discover and appreciate the complexity of the relationship between nature and culture. Ceramics offers them the opportunity to explore these fascinating links between human action and the elements of nature that are earth, water, air and fire. Basically, it is spontaneous action that fuels their creative process. They like imperfection, the raw, the authentic, the crooked line and detours. They like having to stop and take the time to look and touch. Thus, each piece is unique and has a particular character. They all create a singular emotion, they all evoke a personal story. Sometimes soft, aggressive, happy or sad, each of the pieces represents a different part of the artist.
