About this project

The early European porcelains of Meissen and Sèvres were my reference but these symbols of perfection eliminated the mark of the maker. Disrupting, simplifying and transforming these forms with the imperfect touch and emphasis of material qualities creates a bare essential caricature. The still life paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque period overlaid with allegorical allegations and the erotic associations of certain fruits and vegetables were also my inspiration.
