My work references exclusive and precious porcelain wares from 18th-century Europe as I seek to capture the qualities for which porcelain has been known since its discovery thousands of years ago in China: whiteness, translucency, and resonance. I am attracted to the enameled and lustered surfaces of the Baroque, Renaissance, and Rococo porcelain designs as well as elaborations on structural elements from these time periods.
