Tanya Brett creates a very interesting worked surface on the various animals she makes. Her application of simple oxides to emphasize the subtle variations of her surface creates a beautiful contrast. Her influence from her own drawing background also makes her pieces unique.


Russel Wrankle’s pieces often combine the animal form with a vessel. He also uses small hints at animal anatomy, and an interest in the animals role in history.

brianhollingworthBrian Hollingworth is a sculptor in the UK. He often gets commissions like this one for gardens. I enjoy the monumental quality that his pieces have once he casts them in bronze, while his ceramic forms have a more siplistic appearance.

I grew up in Dallas, Texas where I learned to love nature, animals, and art. I graduated with a BFA in ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2011. I am currently working towards my MFA in ceramics at the University of Florida. This blog serves as a way for my friends and family, as well as anyone interested in my work, to view not only the finished pieces, but some of the process as well.
