Yolande's sculptures and vessels are thrown on the kick-wheel or formed from blocks of porcelain and stoneware. Her approach is spontaneous and immediate. She creates with few preconceived notions as to who or what might emerge from the clay, and is especially interested in the way the motions of making becomes muscle memory; embodied, gestural, energetic. Invariably certain attitudes, stances, or personaes erupt from the material; a recognition arises, and then the piece is ready to be fired.
