Mash-Up

I am finishing an independent study in the architecture department. It is nice to find a kinship regarding function with another field and to see a new perspective on planning, using space and light, and considering materials.

These liquor sets are the culmination of the pottery-architecture mash-up that has been happening in my studio recently. The stands are slipcast earthenware and the bottles, cups, and utensils are cone 3 red clay.

New Work for Sale

Greetings! Some new work has emerged from the kiln within the last couple of weeks and about a dozen pieces are currently for sale on my etsy page. More will be added as the summer gets hotter down here in Florida. These cups and pitcher give a little glimpse into the developments of my first year of graduate school. I have been looking more closely at the ways painters layer color and I’ve expanded my palette. Architecture has been a big influence the shapes that I’ve been making. I hope you enjoy seeing the changes.
