Two objects in porcelain are presented below. One functions as a container, the other as an emitter. I strive for my ceramics to possess a 'neutral force', a kind of pulse, both containing and giving forth energy. This first image shows a lidded container I made this year, true to my aesthetic, but with more emphasis on ornamentation for sure. I have come to love lidded vessels. There is something very complete about a skillfully constructed jar. The second image illustrates a lamp from a series of lighting I made, on display at BDDW in New York City. To date, my lighting has stayed true to the classic 'base and shade' combination. Sometimes I find it difficult to remove myself from the classics.
