Each piece of Deborah Roger's work begins as a drawing/blueprint as her unfired clay warps and shrinks. Altered and fabricated objects are made in advance, incorporating them as the clay is hand built. Washes of acrylic, layers of colored pencil, dyes, ink, drawings and commentary are added to the surface. The narrative story, as important as the 3-D piece, marry to convey a message as a whole. Surfaces are preserved with paste wax. Deborah considers herself an Intuitive Visual Artist/Sculptor. In her words, "the eyes will see strange things that the mind will alter.
