“Pecnik uses a variety of techniques to produce clay sculptures that almost seem to be a part of the Louisiana Landscape she honors. She uses texture and shape, combines beautiful glazes with natural ceramic and the colors of the earth in her work. The vessels and sculptured forms are a tribute to nature, and each piece has a voice that speaks respect for the earth.”
