Grounded

I’m really excited about my work in the show. For years while I was developing my skills as a potter I didn’t really spend any time drawing, which was my first love as an artist. In the last couple of years I’ve been able to incorporate my drawings more and more into my ceramic work through the use of decals and it’s very gratifying.
In my work for this show I focused mainly on surface design. I divided the surfaces of the pots into blocks of color, layering subtle colors with underglaze and then using those blocks as the background for decals or silkscreen designs. This new work is much more graphic, using pattern and line to define the forms.
