The blue and white pottery is hand
painted stoneware.  Cobalt is applied
using a variety of brushes, and
sometimes flat applications of blue are
scratched through to create
white-in-blue designs.  My patterns
and designs are inspired by nature.

for centuries in China the peony was
considered to be "the Emperor's flower."  In
ancient times the peony was drawn with
fairly botanical accuracy, but as the
centuries passed, the peony grew more and
more stylized -- it lost it's "earthly ties" to
better express the Emperor's being a direct
descendant of Heaven.  The design on the
plate to the right was inspired by the peony
in T'zu Chou ware.
