Free Form Porcelain
Each piece is hand formed, glazed, and accented with original hand painted designs. Occasionally you will find a little fused glass sneaking onto a piece! I prefer to paint themes from nature- animals, sea life, and plants, especially Southern flowers.
Each piece endures numerous kiln firings with temperatures reaching 2250F. During this intense heat, the structures often twist, turn, compress, etc. Consequently, every piece is a unique form and cannot be duplicated.
The paintings are all created by hand; no decals are used in any of my work. The mineral paints, metallics-gold, platinum, copper- and lusters are hand applied and are permanent after kiln firing.
