My mind is nurtured by both the natural world and art. Shapes, colors and textures evolve from this amalgam making it difficult to identify their beginnings. This scalloped edge, which keeps showing up in my turnings, is at times regular and symmetric, other times not. Does this theme come from sea creatures or flower blossoms? More likely, its origins are in that fine china vase my mother kept on the dining room sideboard. In this piece, the seeming juxtaposition of ceramic and wood would defy nature, if it weren't for the wonder of acrylics.
