Lee Ayars – Ceramics/Sculpture
First: The art is my statement!
Lately, most of my art involves clay. I am comfortable working in clay. It can be moved and formed many ways. It is an expressive, sensitive, responsive, intimate material that allows for spontaneity while exploring form, and at the same time, it records movement and gesture.
I hope for a presence or mood in my art – a mysterious presence. For me, art is about emotion!
My desire, as a teacher, is to pass on my enthusiasm about the ceramic art process and its unlimited expressive possibilities.
Oh, and – I love innocence in art.
