Flotilla is grounded in the contemporary phenomena of the Canoe Journeys, gatherings that occur today where canoes from several native communities come together and visit a designated place. This resurgence celebrities tradition and community. My boats become vignettes. Personas placed in water floatation devises like canoes, inner tubes or rafts imply stories.

The roughly hewed characters built of slab low-fire ceramics use the basic inherent qualities of ceramics.  Embedded textures highlight the surface. The visible merging of planes emphasize process and expression. The singular color accent form.
