The word “morphology” comes from the Greek word for “form.” The term now refers to a common mode of scientific analysis utilized to understand objects in terms of their parts, shapes, and structures. Morphology also explores how these parts come together to create a unified whole. This exhibition is dedicated to a morphological understanding of pottery.

Cesky Porcelain

I was invited to participate in the 2018 Cesky Porcelain Symposium in Dubi, Czech Republic (June 10 - 20) with 16 other artists from around the world. We painted with cobalt on porcelain bisque. It was a wonderful experience to work alongside this diverse and talented group of artists. The symposium included tours of the Cesky Porcelain Factory and the Royal Dux Figurine Factory in Duchov. It was a productive ten days!
