The ever changing qualities of nature’s palette are a constant source of inspiration for my work. I strive to create my impressions of the natural world by altering porcelain wheel-thrown forms: sometimes carving or hand-building,sometimes texturing by using slips or water etching. I use a repertoire of colors, each piece a translation which remind me of the sea,the opalescence of a shell,of mosses and lichens, each of which reflect my philosophy of the beauty and simplicity in art and life.
