Smith-Hunter bio image

I am inspired by images from pre-history, light and color of the American Southwest, landscapes of human faces and Vermont gardens of tendril and leaf pattern. Some sculptures intend to suggest the stillness of ancient civilizations and earth, as well as expanses of space and time. Ceramic planters explore various human countenances and expressions as well as function.

My aesthetic derives from delight in the forces of nature and natural forms. Sculpture is my primary mode of communication and clay is the vehicle. Works I exhibit at The Brandon Artists’ Guild range from wall planters, to small, furtive animals and humans on to mosaic constructions and textural structures.
