My decorative porcelain vessels are inspired by Floriography, the language of flowers. Through this secretive means of communication each decanter or glass offers a message or a combination of messages. The symbolism of each flower often corresponds with the historical use of the plant. Through illustrating corresponding botanical studies, I study the many forms a flower or plant may take over the course of its life. These shapes and colors directly influence the forms and surfaces of my vessels.
