These are a few of the styles I use often in my work.
Any geometric shape is a source of inspiration. I play with lines, circles and triangles, to name a few. Different techniques are used, for instance this one is called Mishima, where lines are carved with an exacto knife and filled with color.
People often refer to my work as looking Mid Century Modern. It’s something that occurs naturally in my work since I love simple shapes and designs that accentuate that shape, often using a calculated repetitive pattern. The design shown here is hand painted on.
A great way for me to create my more organic elements, is using the sgraffito technique. I hand paint the rough shape on in underglaze, then clean up the contours and create the lines using a carving tool. Each one is therefore different and unique.
