i frequently create flower arrangements and have also been a ceramicist in the past.  combining these two pursuits in interior decorations gave me inspiration for this series.

the challenge is to integrate these subjects in a colorful and meaningful way.  the juxtaposition of plants within a structure – both in my home and in my church – create a varied use of color and design which informs my aesthetic judgment.  selections of specific flowers, such as quince, chinese lantern, and amaryllis, remind me of taiwan.
