I am a self-taught sculptor from the finger lakes region of New York State making botanical sculpture art from porcelain and clay.

As a child, I made my toys from modeling clay from as early as 4 years old. I created everything from animals, airplanes, soldiers, sports figures. I really would make cool sculptures of anything I could imagine. I made my first flower at age 10 and it was a red and white rose for my mother. I knew then that I would always be able to go back to making ceramic flowers and beautiful sculptures to make money but didn't do so until I was 26 years old.

Now 4 years later I have made almost 1,000 of these detailed artworks with each one bringing a deeper meaning other than just their obvious beauty. Every now and then I say I want to make a work of art other than a flower or succulent plants but I always go back to forming petals in that geometric sequence that is so captivating. Each unique artwork is different and I won't ever stop making them. After all the world can always use more flowers.

Amazing what you do with the limitation of colors to create such variety.

If you wait for the kiln to cool to around 130 degrees F then you can avoid the cracks in the glaze, unless that is what you were going for.
