Human Vessels: Untitled Pair (Human Vessels)
The Human Vessel series is reflective of my interest in the human body. As a figurative sculptor I am interested in the relationship between ceramic vessels and the human form. Individually, as pairs, or in groups, it is interesting to see how the form and surface give each piece its own unique identity and how the vessels interact with each other.
