About this project

Having traveled to the Arizona desert I was inspired to create a range of sculptural vessels based on the Sonoran cactus.  They depict the calm and often solitary characteristics of the cactus standing across the landscape; and by throwing and hand building the pieces in sections I am able to replicate the textured and convoluted forms.  White glaze over washes of oxide compliment the serenity of the cactus while platinum lustre brings contrast to the rims.  All pieces are unique!
