Wheel thrown porcelain teapot and cup. Sculptural, nonfunctional teapot with hand applied spikes, glazed with matte black airbrushed glaze and hand applied gloss red glaze, then fired to maturity in an electric kiln.The looks of this piece often fool even the most astute collector---who wonders what this is made of! ( " is it glass?") The contrast between the matte black and the gloss red is intriguing.
Inspired by the seedpod, this piece represents the tenacious seed that attaches itself to your socks, or other bits of clothing to transport itself to an area where it is suitable for growth. Ever wonder how a certain plant got to where it is? Transportation is supplied to the wise seed that can attach itself to human, animal or any other vehicle of transportation. We should be as smart---and in fact, we are!
