The works that I’ve chosen for this display reflect my interest in creating ceramic vessels. Objects that have been used throughout history have been created with a purpose and function in mind. Pottery is still used in everyday life, so I feel privileged to explore the needs of today’s society through my craft. My work explores how a vessel can relate to both the past and the present. Various methods of construction and decorating techniques have been employed in the creation of these ceramic vessels.
