I'd just like to start out this post with another big THANK YOU! to the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design for support through the Windgate Fellowship. This amazing organization provided funds for me to do visual research in Italy and Chicago, allowed me to build a studio, AND in the spring I'll be going to Inyo National Forest to do more research. I can't thank them enough! This fellowship has allowed me to enrich and continue my artistic practice. From these experiences I've already begun to develop new pieces such as this one.
P.S. If you're looking for holiday gifts, Click here for my Etsy store and you can find some functional work! I have a few teapots (all ceramic and completely one of a kind, I assure you). Get them while you still can!
