About the Artist
I use ceramics as a blank canvas and integrate my training in traditional Chinese brush painting and hand sculpting techniques. This is particularly evident in the Hand Painted Sugar Jar and Creamer set where both techniques were used to create the final product. In addition to the bird paintings and botanical illustrations on the products, the hand-sculpted bird on the sugar bowl lid was created to replace the traditional knob as this provides the user with an improved grip on the lid during use as well as enhances the beauty of the product. The hand-sculpted bird on the creamer handle was created to allow the user the ability to rest their thumb on the back of the bird thereby providing an even flow of liquid from the creamer and also enhancing the beauty of the product. Art and functionality of a product are very important to me and I am always reviewing my products to provide enhancements that will improve the product's quality for the customer.
