Porcelain pottery - wheel-thrown, altered, and assembled
I have always enjoyed making pieces that can be functional forms for everyday use as well as presentation pieces for special occasions. My forms are predominately inspired by eighteenth and nineteenth century decorative arts, particularly utilitarian silver tableware and Sevres porcelain. My work is also influenced by my reverence for plant forms in nature. My intent is to artistically integrate these influences together with function so my work expresses a single vision.
