[col3] Work

“I produce three-dimensional paintings out of pots. The studio challenge is to determine a way to create containers that belong not only on the dinner table, but also elsewhere in the home. They still need to do their job; to be genuine, they must be functional as well as opulent. But they can be so much more”.[/col3]
