Coil-pinched porcelain, airbrushed underglaze
4" x 3" x 3"
DescriptionMy current body of work reflects my childhood immersed in my parents’ kite shop at the beach. I grew up inside the shop painted baby blue with clouds and kites pinned floor to ceiling surrounded by patterns and saturated colors. This sensibility seeped into my functional work during the pandemic when I shifted to center my work around small joys. The playful nature of the surface mimics the way the pots were constructed using a simple coil pinch method frequently taught in elementary school art classes.
