A love of clay and a passion for color and pattern is what fuels Willard’s work as a ceramic artist and potter. As a woman of color, metaphors created through complex layers of pattern and color present endless possibilities for exploring identity, materiality, and design. Working with clay is as much a desire to create, as it is a commitment to nurturing a love of the arts and the handmade in herself and others.
