Artist Statement
My work is porcelain, wheel-thrown, and one-of-a-kind. Each individual piece is hand-painted with slip, decorated with colors of underglaze, and high-fired. They are delicately crafted with details that are inspired by nature.
My themes expresses beauty and harmony, as well as playfulness. The motif includes images of wildlife, which are enhanced through my own interpretation-- based on visual and tactile impressions-- often along with a story, or personal experience. It is my visual diary and has evolved over the years. By using playful and unique functional pots, I hope to enhance the dining experience, as well as create a pleasant atmosphere, where you share thoughts with friends and family. It is my endeavor to share positive & uplifting emotions through my work.
