While enamored with thrifting mid-century modern furniture and collectables, my work emanates the colors, patterns, and vibrant expression of the 1960’s and 70’s. I am captivated by finding new life, value, and joy in the monotonous by pairing vintage items with my handmade pottery. Uniting discarded items with the handmade offers the potential to bring them into the spotlight of appreciation. I am enthralled with this era’s home design, outrageous fashion, and exciting color palettes. With vintage items, the original surfaces are worn away by decades of everyday use, habitual routines, and mundane utility while still maintaining their beauty. My ceramic surfaces illustrate this inspiration through a combination of layering vintage botanical designs, colored slip, underglaze, and applied texture. My forms directly reference mid-century kitchenware such as coffee carafes, barware, and canisters.
