Silken textured glazes paired with the rounded and elegantly flowing forms of birds have

often been the inspiration for my porcelain vessels and sculptural forms. I choose to make

wheel-thrown forms that are altered softly and glazed to feel like eggshells.

I am particularly drawn to vessels with a purpose, and enjoy the idea that they can be

used.

I work with Southern Ice porcelain, which I fire to a maximum of 1305 degrees Celsius.

The glazes I make are subtly coloured to retain their translucence and eggshell surface. I

often like using hollow shapes for both their reduced weight and ease of manipulation.
