VESSELS are created from thin slabs of low fire red and/or white clay and black stoneware clay as well. I manipulate the clay surface with a variety of texturizing tools, stamps, and organic materials. After the initial kiln firing the vessels become my canvas on which I apply and layer acrylic paints to enhance the textures often creating a patina effect on the clay surface. Each vessel is one-of-a-kind. Please email me if you would like to see multiple views of a piece you are interested in. VIDEO making a "Ballon Vessel"
