porcelain, incised dragonfly/leaves, blue celadon
(4.25 x 3.25 inches) CUP 048 $280

I have been incising porcelain for thirty five years and I still love doing it as much as when I started.  My work used to only involve the taking away of clay from the form but in the last five years I have been adding clay to make another layer and surface dimension.  There is something magical about this technique that seems to bring each piece to life towards the end of that process.  The final lines in my carved pieces are enhanced by the use of celadon glazes that help define the design. Moving to Nevada has influenced my drawing but I still like doing other images. I carve for myself first and have been most fortunate that serious collectors appreciate my work.
