Non-Objective Geometric Ceramic Art

Calissons

This body of work was inspired by Calissons, the traditional lozenge shaped confectionary from Aix-en-Provence. I love the shape of their packaging and the way the sweets are arranged in a tessellated pattern in the box. The smooth matte fondant glaze on the calissons reminds me of the cool smoothness of unglazed porcelain. All works are hand-built porcelain painted with underglaze.

Double Take 2

These works continue my investigation of painted pattern and illusion on two and three dimensional surfaces. I worked with forms often associated with domestic use, using underglaze on porcelain to paint them with geometric pattern and pairing  them with painted patterns and other forms to create visual ambiguities.
