Flowers

Flowers are handbuilt from porcelain with embossed hand-carved petals. A lovely addition to a wall that adds a unique focal point. For larger Flowers click here.

These pieces are inspired by Art Nouveau and Art Deco designs, and Arts & Crafts Period relief tile work, and my love for the natural world. When approaching and studying a flower in nature, its details are revealed providing an extraordinarily rich miniature world of textures, colors and patterns. I use the abstracted flower form and finely carved patterns in my work to attempt to emulate this process of discovery both for myself in the making of the piece and also for the viewer.
