My Process

 

I work with a red/brown clay body and fire in ^6 oxidation. My work is primarily wheel thrown and hand built. Each piece is decorated with slips + underglazes during greenware and bisqueware stages. I am inspired by nature + florals, and enjoy creating dynamic compositions on the surface of each piece. I create depth and texture in my work by using layers of underglazes + slips as well as translucent glossy glazes.
