Nancy spent the first fifteen years of her artistic career creating functional raku works. In 1980 she began to expand the parameters of her ceramics, creating functional wall shelves , or "wall pouches, " some that suggested butterflies or female forms. Post 9/11 her figures transformed into her ongoing Armor Series. My work is about women in emergence.
Her emotionally expressive clay shapes are hand-built or wheel-thrown and are glazed, painted with acrylics, or finished with any combination of techniques that appeals to the artist.
