This collection was inspired by the quiet waters in Biscayne Bay in Miami, Florida. These waters, close in proximity to urban life, I frequently kayak though to see dolphin, manatee and stingrays. Each vessel is handmade out of porcelain that is first worked on a potter's wheel then hand manipulated, fired in a kiln, glazed and fired a second time. The patterns on the vessels are individually carved and will not be replicated exactly the same way in another piece. I approach each piece as a sculpture taking sometimes hours to create as compare to many production potters who make their ware in a matter of minutes.
