About this project

The external surfaces of my carved vessels are incised with parallel lines, using a technique that fractures the clay. This creates a texture that is reminiscent of the fragmented patterns found in eroded geological formations. Each piece is unique, not just because it is hand-carved, but also because the underlying form of each vessel constrains the flow of the incised lines. The carved exteriors create a sense of movement that contrasts with the stillness and solidity of the vessel forms.
