With a lifelong passion for nature, animals, and the Arts, Christine Mertin brings inspiration and functional sculpture to life through her work. Each one of a kind piece reflects a unique gift from the earth.
"As a Potter and Equine Sculptor, my functional clay art is focused around the subject of the "Free Spirit." I find my inspiration in the untamed majesty of the horse, the transformational freedom of the butterfly and the visceral sensitivity of angelic wisdom we all possess. As a clay artisan, I am an active observer; watching as my work reveals the individual personality embedded in each piece. Sculpting brings me a peaceful awareness as I allow each design to flow freely until the moment I know it is complete. It is as serene as it is liberating and I hope you find meaning and connection with one or more of my pieces."
