"Dot Illusions"

I've been working on a new body of work this summer. It reflects a change in my approach to surface and space. A deviation from the cherry themes, the focus has been complete surface decoration, pattern and the space left in between. I should title the body, "Glazes, Grids and the Grind" as this process requires a good dose of lazer focus, a steady hand and more time than I care to admit. 

Pieces from the "Dot Illusion" series are making appearances locally. Find them at the "Sips, Brews and Gulps" Cup Exhibition at Sweetwater Center for the Arts until August.
