Sheila Watson Coutin is intrigued by how the human form is connected with forms from nature. The sea and boats have been an important part of her life since early childhood and her garden continues to to inspire her. Clay seems to me to be a natural way to combuine these themes. She makes both functional and sculptural pottery, frequently with wave and fish forms decorating her pots and bowls. "Through clay I have discovered I am drawn to fantasy—the only limit is my imagination."
