I create each piece one at a time in my home studio. I begin by hand-forming each piece with an imprinting technique from porcelain clay. After imprinting the clay, I hand-cut each piece to the desired shape and fire them in my kiln. I meticulously hand-paint each pendant with an eye for color, detail, and great respect for quality craftsmanship. I paint using a thin layering technique to create vibrant color and fine detail. I create all my designs in small batches, and supplies are often limited due to the time intensive process and technique of my work.
