Plant Impressed

This line of work is what I developed out of Grad School to launch my studio career.  It is cone 5 porcelain and was fired in a small home made electric kiln that was on wheels so it could be rolled from my studio in an adjacent bedroom into the kitchen and plugged in to the electric stove outlet. My goal was to do semi-production work where there were efficiencies through common shapes and sizes, but at the same time space for individual variation and expression in each piece.  I made extensive use of dried grasses that were impressed into the rolled slab and allowed to burn out in the bisque.  This decorative element resonated with my nature and had the bonus of being very efficient.
