Christine K. Harris is a New Jersey art therapist who leads healing arts programs for children who have experienced painful challenges and losses.
Her polymer clay works resemble stone. She molds and carves the clay, incises and draws on it, sands, paints, and buffs it. Then she combines it with found objects and collage to create a richness not possible in other media.
Christine says she is drawn to winged figures, prevalent in the myths of almost every human culture. These figures, caught in flight, represent the spirit of the individual seeking to transcend the limitations of matter.
