From the artist:

My ceramic vessels portray spirituality and are influenced by symbols in religious architecture.  Inspirations include Islamic temples and mosques and architecture of the Czech Republic that are topped with domes, spires and finials. Luxury or ceremonial wares that were originally made to reside in holy or other culturally significant edifices are also an influence.

Such examples include Islamic metalwork and pottery and Chinese ritual bronze vessels. I seek to take advantage of clay’s ability to retain carefully defined and metal-like details while using luxurious metallic finishes, only possible through the ceramic process, that highlight the symbolic elements of the work.
