Nina explains her approach in creating her art, “I approach each measure of clay with reverence, never knowing which direction the clay will take me. I have learned to be patient and yield to the voice of the clay.” A featured piece is the ultimate example of the melding of the traditions made from our native micaceous clay in the form of a lotus blossom.
