"Pushing the surface of the clay to create lush patterns with graceful, flowing lines"
As a ceramic artist, my goal is to bring a touch of artistry and elegance anywhere in the home. Working in porcelain, my stylized technique is a unique process of pushing the surface of the clay with my personally designed tools, creating lush and fluid surfaces that beg to be touched. Designs and patterns found in Gothic Architecture mixed with the fluidity of Art Nouveau are strong influences for my patterns. Inspiration from textile and fashion design provides movement to the texture on the form. I fire my work in my soda kiln. Sodium vapors glaze the exterior of each vessel, interacting and uniquely highlighting the form and surface.
