The inspiration for my vessels and lamps is drawn from both Asian and European porcelain traditions, and from natural forms and textures. The strength of the porcelain allows me to create a tension between the work’s thin, translucent walls, seemingly so fragile, and the highly textured surfaces, which ask to be touched.
My appreciation for form, light, and texture goes back to my childhood. I would spend hours clambering up trees to watch weak sunlight push through early morning mist, and afternoon light filter through leaves to create dappled patterns on the ground. I examined closely the color, texture, and patterns of tiny stones, shells, and twigs. I try to capture and share with others the magic of these experiences through my work.
