Palm Prints: Jamie Bardsley
"Sitting on the floor crossed legged for hours at a time, I would pound out little pieces of clay and then fold them into the palm of my hand.  These folds are made from various porcelain clay bodies, each with a slightly different hue.  The memory of the clay reveals the lines from my hand and records the making of each intimate piece. The folds became a driving force, the pieces themselves began making me; the quiet hours spent folding clay in the studio lead me to a meditative peace. " Jaimie Bardsley.
