My work is hand-thrown and hand-built functional and decorative porcelain pottery. It is hand-decorated with original drawings and paintings of natural images. This cobalt blue artwork is inspired by our gardens and forest on Harstine Island in Puget Sound.

Decoration is a combination of underglaze painting, wax resist line drawing and overglaze painting. The medium is cobalt blue oxide with a clear glaze on white porcelain. I am trying to achieve a depth of layers in the image which cannot be “read” at first glance but which reveals itself to the viewer over time.

Within the very traditional format of blue and white porcelain I am using unconventional subject matter, scale and technique. Focusing on a limited glaze and color palette has freed rather than restricted my creative scope.
