Title:  Midnight Toast – True Porcelain Sake Set

Size:  7″h x 7″w x 7″d

Light and Shadow:  True porcelain is opaque; shadows can be seen through the surface of clay.

Price:  $120

Statement:  Porcelain is my medium of choice; the clay body is like no other. True porcelain is soft and challenging to throw with, yet stronger than other clay bodies. I enjoy the process of throwing, shaping, and trimming the clay into a functional art form that is unique in the southwest. I take inspiration from pieces being created across the world in Japan. Once porcelain is fired it is opaque; shadows can be seen through the surface of clay. With a dark glaze I depart from traditional porcelain decoration and take away the transparency of the clay, creating work only visible in the light.
