Most recently I have been captivated by the female image, creating wheel-thrown and hand-built sculptural pieces, Lady Carafes, in stoneware and porcelain.. This current series underlines my commitment to functional art, to aesthetic objects that serve utilitarian purposes, and to the user’s personal interaction with beautiful objects of art in daily life.
The Lady Carafes hold water, wine, or whatever liquid your heart desires. Capacities vary, with 3 cups being typical. The heads and shoulders lift out of the carafe like corks. Each one is unique.
