Title: White Vase

Year of Creation: 2010

Glaze: Clear

Clay Body: Porcelain

Dimensions: Height 9.8 inches

Artist's Statement: I love clay most when it is leather hard. No colour or glaze - just shape.

This is what inspired me to start my white collection. The shapes have to be very strong and meaningful to stand on their own, without the aid of decoration or colour.

I often add texture in the form of raised dots or vertical elements, making sure that there are enough lines that catch the light, to enhance and decorate. The simplicity of design serves another purposed; the vase should not overpower the flowers that are placed therein. A simple and modest vase pleases me most.
