Ceramic Sculptures by JoAnna Fireman
"The sculptures I create focus on many aspects of our wild instinctual psyche as articulated through animal and human forms. Stripped down to their bare bones, these creatures exhibit a primitive life force, both fierce and vulnerable."
"I approach the clay as I would an unknown animal, with my senses fully open."
"A creature may emerge in a recognizable form speaking of its plight or its magnificence."
"More often the form appears mysterious, inviting me to wonder about its nature, our nature, and our relationship."
