Melissa's Stele

Melissa Woodburn

Melissa is inspired by using a variety
of media to express statements
about the rhythms and cycles of living.
While using traditional materials
(pine needles and ceramic)
and traditional methods
(coiling and slab),
she pushes the final product into a
non-traditional sculptural vessel,
while honoring the original
rhythms of the materials.
The finished vessels make statements
about a moment in time,
a sense of place,
a cycle started, a cycle complete.
