Clay

 Clay is a new medium of interest. Gwinn is experimenting with handbuilding at the co-op studio which operates under the umbrella of Carlsbad Area Art Association. Slowly she is learning about characteristics of clay, but mostly she is playing and attempting to express images of interest to her. Feel free to contact the artist about any of the work : hgwinn@zianet.com
