Michelle combines her natural affinity with weaving and textiles with ceramics. Allowing intuition to guide her work, Michelle often simply starts with a form, texture or feeling and lets the piece take shape naturally. Her desire to weave into and around rock began with using mixed media to mimic stone, which led to a venture into ceramics to 'sculpt stoneware' prior to weaving it.
