During my post baccalaureate year at Northern Arizona University from summer of 2015 to spring of 2016 I took time to experiment. I wanted to see what else was “in me” and where my creative path would lead next. These objects are some of the pieces I worked on. I hand built built them out of porcelain that I oxidation fired to cone 5. I also did some testing with Velvet underglazes, oxides, decals, and luster. Although I can appreciate the playfulness that I can express with adding color, I am more drawn to the quiet expressiveness of just plain, unglazed white porcelain like my pieces Memories, Atrophy, and Shy.
