Using slab-built techniques, I make tabletop and wall pieces in porcelain or stoneware, with an eye on developing shapes and contours that best provide the surface for my hand-drawn imagery. These forms thus become a canvas for depicting scenes that combine my interests in travel, art history, and the natural world.
The pieces I make today evolved naturally over time from a strong foundation producing utilitarian pottery, as well as having an ongoing practice of creating works on paper with various drawing techniques. These once separate pursuits have been the basis of my ceramic work and produce the greatest satisfaction: merging the painted surface into a three-dimensional form.
*Teapots that are sold must remain on display in the gallery as part of the exhibit until the show closes on September 10, 2020. After the show closes, teapots will be carefully packed and shipped by September 26 or available for pick-up at the gallery.
