Artist Statement: 
I create this work using porcelain clay and sterling silver. I hand form, paint, and carve the porcelain. These pieces are fired in a kiln to 2400F, at which point the clay has matured. I then create a custom silver setting to fit each ceramic stone. I primarily use sterling silver and a variety of techniques, such as roller printing, hammering, drilling, sawing, and soldering. On most pieces I use a dark patina to showcase the porcelain.
