Porcelain ceramic with crystalline glaze

My sheer wonder and delight in microscopic forms led to my inquiry into the hidden processes of botanical reproduction. My work details an imagined supposition of life spilling forth, reflecting spontaneity, movement and release, while playing with notions of emergence, novelty and sensuality. The crystalline glaze is essential to my work as it amalgamates elements from the earth and flux of temperatures, embodying the reproductive process through its ability to grow in the kiln and transform into a tiny world of wonder. As with organic processes, the results can be guided and nurtured but are ultimately unpredictable and unique.
