Artist's Statement: This Paisley Pitcher is made from wheel thrown and altered sections which are made separately and then assembled. The majolica decoration is a contemporary approach to the majolica of the Italian Renaissance. My floral motifs are patterns rather actual representations which serve to divide the space in interesting ways. It is fired to 04 and then a third firing adds the gold decal. I strive to make work that is both beautiful and functional at the same time.
