Revealing the Hidden Beauty of Nature
With burnished, smoke-fired pottery, shaped and polished stone, glazed stoneware and their combination
I seek to bring to light the many hidden treasures with which nature surrounds us.
Melting the differently mixed raw materials, minerals and ashes produces glass and stoneware glazes such as this.
Stones reveal their hidden beauty without the aid of fire through the simple art of burnishing. What normally is visible only when stones are wet is now preserved in a glassy smooth surface.
The similarity of these surfaces makes them ready for combination, blurring the lines between nature and the man made.
