As Leslie continues to study pattern styles from all over the world, she gravitates toward female crafts such as batik, quilting, weaving, basket making, and Pueblo pottery design. When she stretches designs inspired by various crafts over the curved surface of the pots, the patterns are enhanced by a new element - that of distortion. Like many potters, she is aware that the pots she makes may last for hundreds of years, becoming part of the record of our culture. It makes her feel a real responsibility to do her best work.
