I was first inspired by the relief work from the early 1900's in the American Craft Movement. I became interested in exploring the mixing of historical vs. contemporary craft, and what this would look like today. Old black and white photographs, that's what these relief designs are for me.

Once the new designs are drawn they are transferred to clay and a carved relief is made of that drawing. In the next step, a plaster mold is made using the new relief. Once that mold has dried, clay pressings are made from it.
