My recent body of muly-media pouring vessels is informed by my interest in metalsmithing. The ceramic component of my work is constructed in a similar way that sheet copper or tin is cut, folded and soldered to create volumetric form. Consequently, the forms share many of the qualities of a tin vessel, such as lightness and delicacy. They are often placed on copper stands in order to suggest that they are reserved for ritualized use, rather than daily use. The glazes are sand blasted to a velvety surface in order to convey a feeling of age and to control the way light interacts with the forms.
