I am fascinated by the relationship between pattern, color, and luminosity within stained-glass windows as well as 19th-century Chinese rice-grain porcelain. I have recently become interested in rosette windows in Gothic-style cathedrals. I use a technique of perforating patterned holes in the clay to allow room for filling these spaces with glaze to achieve a unique level of translucency, similar to windows. I also choose to soda fire in order to create inherent qualities. Combining the elements of material, form, structure, mark making, and pattern is an effort to have a unique dialog between the flame and pooling of glaze.
