“Wickwire’s intriguing clay sculptures of the female figure bring to view emotions of anguish and longing. She was a successful, published poet until she first touched clay and  discovered a direct connection between damp earth and her feeling hands.

“For Wickwire, clay is  female. As it takes form in her hands, it reveals a personality to which she intuitively responds. ‘I feel as if I am simply a conduit that allows her to step forth to tell her story,’ she says. Each masterfully modeled form reveals its nature in gestures and expressions and finds a name from snatches of remembered song to ancient myth, as ‘Daphne,’ ‘Cassandra,’ and the marvelous ‘Persephone.’ “
