Bio:

https://marymaude.wordpress.com/. Creating art proves my soul. My love of sculpting is what pushes me to work up to fourteen hours a day. Sometimes I can’t walk away because doing so is the equivalent of holding my breath. And how long can the average person hold their breath? What, something like four minutes? Coincidently, when I’m sculpting, four minutes IS roughly the amount of time needed to quickly eat something or run to the bathroom. ; ) When I lose a piece, like in a kiln mishap, I lose a piece of my heart. But for me ultimately it’s not about completing the sculpture, it’s about creating the sculpture. What’s that saying? The one about the journey being more important than the destination? I understand. I know it’s the actual sculpting that drives me because the finished piece isn’t anywhere near as important to me as the time I spent touching the clay. All my ceramic sculptures are one-of-a-kind, small in size and very simple in subject matter. I mostly use non-traditional sculpting tools which I've found in thrift stores. Each of my sculptures takes about a week to create, is “babied” through a three-to-four week drying period and are then fired in my kiln. All my sculpture titles are inspired by music. I consider myself to be an outsider* artist (okay, I've done a couple of shows in the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District and ArtWestport). *refers to the creative work of artists who are self-taught, naïve, innocent, visionary, intuitive, eccentric, schizophrenic, developmentally disabled, psychotic, obsessive, compulsive, etc., - those who know me know which of these most appropriately describes me!
