Cree makes jewelry that captures the delicate beauty of West Virginia nature using earthenware clay. Inspiration abounds in the mountain environments of Pocahontas County, where she finds organic objects such as leaves, flowers, and grasses that she presses into clay, creating an imprint of precise detail. Each piece is fired, hand-painted, and fired again. Her work is characterized by an emphasis on small, delicate elements and patterns in nature otherwise easily missed by the casual observer.
