Early Work by Paula Rice — Lazarus Series, Fire Series, Raku Wall pieces & Chinese porcelains...

It has always felt right to me to create human figures out of the clay of the ground.  According to Genesis, it’s the first material God picked up to make a living soul. According to history books, it’s the first sculptural material people found to express the reality of being alive, and their need to stay that way.  Making things out of clay is like having a conversation with my maker.
