About The Artwork

These tiny little bowls are individually thrown from a smooth white porcelain. Once dry, the pieces are bisque fired to make them strong enough to handle. They receive several hand painted coats of terra sigillata, and are then fast fired in raku kiln. When the kiln temperature reaches about 1400 F, I quickly pull the hot, glowing pieces from the kiln with long tongs, and place them on a non-flammable surface (such as a piece of kiln shelf) and the selected hairs are draped onto pieces. They sear onto surface's and leave localized carbon markings. When pieces cooled I just brushed away any burnt remnants and applied the micro-crystalline wax polish to the surface to denote all lines. Dimensions: Largest Bowl is 3″H, 7″D Smallest Bowl is 1″H, 2 1/2″D

Seva Ceramics is a reflection of all my experiences in nature. I am drawn to forms found in nature. Each piece of driftwood, from inception, is a unique work of art. Created by Mother Nature and nurtured throughout its lifespan — every branch reveals a hidden past and spirit telling us a story about how it reached its exceptional form. In our fast-paced lifestyle, I am reminded to slow down and reconnect with nature when I gaze on the imposing beauty this marriage between art and nature conjures. Through exploring and connecting with nature, I am compelled to deepen my understanding of who I am and reflect on my role and purpose in life. Nature pleases and touches me — evoking a desire for solace and gratitude. Being one with Mother Nature sets me free from all the onuses of life, allowing me to concentrate on myself and nourish my soul. Using only natural materials, like porcelain, wood, and fire to create each of these one of a kind creations – I am inspired to broaden my techniques and made bold advances in my artistic forms and statements. In using porcelain exclusively, I witness first hand its strength and viability while watching the mischievous dance porcelain displays during Raku firings. Each wooden adornment offers functionality and beauty to these unparalleled creations. Just as the porcelain speaks during its firings, so does the breath of wood in is subtle acceptance of its new lifeform. I love working with porcelain because of its subtleness, its delicacy, and its strength. Porcelains willingness to be transformed, both in form and texture, makes it a perfect medium for exploring how incompatible objects touch and give birth to my one-of-a-kind sculptural compositions. After creating the porcelain sculptures, they are bisque fired in an electric kiln, then glazed, and fired once again in a Raku kiln. The unique surface of the porcelain sculptures is achieved during these Raku firings. What I enjoy the most about the double firing technique, especially with Raku, is that each piece becomes exclusive and can never be duplicated. It is always a thrill to open the kiln and see what awaits – this keeps me motivated and excited to continually experiment with the Raku process.
