This work, although very different from my more typical earthenware work, continues my series of tondos, , or round relief, found in Italian Renaissance architecture , with vessels as relief. Occasionally, I take the vessel forms off the tondo and place them in various installations. Ideas about relationships, with their similarities and differences, influence me as I group them. Recently, I am using tiles as a surface for these forms as well. All this is in an effort to engage the viewer in the visual shifts and relationships.
