About this project

Once dipped in glaze, dishes, become like primed canvasses awaiting a subject, a fusion of the observed and imagined. The portrait dishes are softly coiled, their painted images inspired by portraits in European paintings and frescos. In other dishes animal subjects create their own narrative.
