Grow

The Grow Series is an abstract, intuitive play of light. Handbuilt with a satiny smooth, unglazed surface.

Introducing Micro-Grow Series:

Hello to this new branch of the Grow Series incorporating the
architecture of micro-marine organisms. This new arrival Frustule Flower, embodies elements of a marine diatom allowing light and air to dance with its many poses. Each position strikes a unique stand and perspective.

A frustule is the cell wall of a diatom composed of silica, inspiring this work. Diatoms have earned the title Lungs of the Planet providing over 25% of Earth’s oxygen. Being a ceramicist offers an intimate connection for the brick of my kiln is made from the remains of million year old diatoms from the ocean floor called diatomaceous earth. The silica structure of the diatom is the material of glazes and particulates of clay. This single-cell organism not only generously provides oxygen for our planet, it makes this ceramicist’s artistic breath and process possible.
