Their experiences snorkeling and fishing strongly influence their art. They make art about fish, aquatic life and animals. The process starts with a series of sketches. They use stoneware clay or porcelain to make the basic forms. These forms are manipulated, hollowed out and added to. The teeth and eyes are made out of porcelain. The pieces are bisque fired. Glazes are applied by dipping, spraying and brushing. The pieces are then fired again. The artwork is about form, expression, color, texture and movement. Each piece is unique.
