Elizabeth’s work explores the relationships between everyday objects, color, image and form. We take for granted the vessels that hold the essential, as well as pleasurable, liquids we drink along with the plates and bowls that act as a carrier for our meals we create.

Elizabeth works with a porcelain clay bod. She uses a mix of slipcasting, handbuilding and wheelthrowing techniques. The objects act as a canvas for drawings that can be found on most of her work.
