Creating this 12″ bowl was a fun and interesting challenge. My client wanted a specific shade of yellow to be incorporated with mottled sunset colors. Yellow is a color I have avoided in the past, but I’m a convert. After several tests and experiments, I was able to create a marigold shade of yellow. I love it so much, I’m already using it in other new works. This is the Sunset Bowl. It is 12″ diameter and now lives in a beautiful home in Texas.
A client loved the original of this bowl, which is finished in a silver-toned metallic. Her home interior featured lush golden tones, so she asked if the metallic could be changed to coordinate with her interior. Of course! This commissioned blush bowl is the lovely result. 11″ diameter.
Just like the well-loved Marigold flower bloom, this bowl symbolizes beauty, warmth, creativity, a drive to succeed. Perfect as a gift, or to set out and be reminded of your own values. The vessel is created from reclaimed glass and is finished in orange and yellow pigments and variegated metal foil. It measures 10″ diameter.
This bowl is marked with charcoal striations and finished in a silver metallic. It measures 11″ in diameter.
This 16″ vessel was commissioned for a southern California residence. The citrus colors of tangerine and lime were very fun to work with. It’s just a splash of California Joy!
When I was a kid, I loved The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. The drama was pretty good, but my favorite thing was the Wardrobe. The whole idea of stepping through a secret door to another world was intriguing and delightful. And I’ll admit, the idea intrigues me to this day. I still check closets for secret doors. (Sorry to report, none yet.) That’s why I’m so interested in creating portals to the beyond, like this one: Swirls of cobalt and teal promise the adventure of another place. Another time. The metallic silver throws reflections of yourself, just on the other side, looking back. It’s like you can see the shape of yourself in another dimension waiving, “C’mon over, it’s fantastic here.” This piece is 22″ in diameter. It’s permanently framed in a coordinating silver-toned frame. Available via ArtfulHome.
te with texture, this viridescent vessel is the perfect pop of color for any space. The asymmetrical bowl is created with an assortment of green pigments that are layered and finished with the gleam of variegated metal foil.
This textural vessel is organic yet elegantly versatile with its rich coloration and metallic finish. The piece is created from reclaimed glass and finished in opaque oxblood burgundy and smoky black charcoal. This is a limited production design that measures 11″ in diameter and 3″ tall.
This custom commission was for a builder/designer that specializes in rehabbing historical homes. Where most designers would have torn down the structure to build a cape cod, this designer chose to take on the challenge of renovating and showcasing how the home could fit in to the neighborhood. The designer was faced with the restoration and redesign of a 1945 midcentury modern/Frank Lloyd Wright prairie house. His aim was to keep the architecture in keeping with the home’s roots, while creating a modern and flowing interior. When he came to me to create the centerpiece of the living area, we discussed many concepts. In the end, we settled on the idea of creating a flowing piece that references the neighborhood’s proximity to the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound. We should bronze metallic highlights on the side edges of the triptych to flow into the space that was finished in a color called Natural Linen. The finished piece is the culmination of two months worth of studio work. The piece is composed of multiple layers …
