Follow your Heart to Art

These pieces are handbuilt with custom porcelain paper clay. Texture is applied with texture mats and stamps. They are fired to cone 5 in oxidation.

Growing up in Philadelphia, inspired by Asian art, this body of work, ‘Grand Green’, is a fusion between Victorian china and Japanese woodblocks. An oribe glaze accents my hand-carved linoleum texture mats, used to create the fabric of these handbuilt pieces.
