Spellbound by Porcelain since first I touched it, I have explored this endearing material for over 30 years. The image that takes form in front of me, from a lump of clay, is intriguing.
I find expression through Porcelain. Sometimes it is whimsical and light, other times contemplative and calming. Continually, the Porcelain embodies hope or promise with its ability to hold light. It is fulfilling when pieces taken from the kiln have their own aura; a life energy that comes out of my hands and mind, but that truly is infused with magic. I continue with Porcelain delighted with the way it reveals the wonders of our beautiful world.
