"I am drawn to making birds because, at rest, they make a self contained form. They remind me of pots.

Their feathers are so intricate and vivid that I am defeated by them. But still I try to evoke the lightness of birds in the way that I work the clay and the slips and oxides that I apply later." - Guy Holder
