About the Work
Similar to my paintings, I use a variety of materials to create these functional pieces. The vessel is ceramic with slips and glazes and can hold moisture yet breathe, perfect for plants. The hanging pieces are tied together with silk string and embellished with beads that are: hand-sculpted ceramic, pearls, coral, semi-precious stones and wood. All of these elements are supported from found wood that I have collected on my hikes in and around the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Each piece of wood is chosen based on it's unique shape which accentuates the vessel that it supports. My intention of these pieces is to bring beauty and nature into the home through sculpture and function inviting us to incorporate art and nature into our daily lives.
