The tumblers I create are handcrafted from beginning to end. The clay is mixed, thrown on a potter’s wheel and fired in a kiln. I polish them and have discovered a method to transfer the paintings I create on my sculptures into decals that fire onto the tumblers. The results are beautiful translucent porcelain vessels that takes on an alabaster appearance with original imagery from my paint


After applying the transfer, I enhance the image with china paints and fire once more. 


The image on the left is a good firing and the right is a result of overfiring a kiln.
