In my work I am strongly inspired by nature. Influenced by previous experience in Ikebana (the art of Japanese flower arrangement), I am combining ceramics with floral and plant design with a focus on simplicity.
Surfaces of my ceramic pieces are often unglazed to accentuate the natural beauty and earthy appearance of the clay. Others have a texture that resembles lichen, how it grows on boulders in nature. My pieces are wheel-thrown, hand-built or a combination of both, and organic in shape. My work comprises vessels for succulents and air plants, vases, sculptures, and mugs.
I am based in Pasadena, CA where I am working out of my home studio. My pieces can be purchased at various events in Southern California, or from my Etsy shop.
