Statement

"Oop Art" is a term coined by my husband Bill for those happy accidents we all experience when something happens to the piece during the process which makes it much better than one can ever plan. Using alternative firing techniques pretty much makes all my art making oop art. Every piece, time and again, looks completely different than the look I was going for, and always is the better for it. Oops- I'm not supposed to say that!
