Artist's Statement
Magnified images of plant-life that expose the fascinating patterns within its growth have inspired me to investigate the simplest of shapes; to structure abstract forms that suggest our natural world.  Flimsy rings or discs of pure white porcelain or porcelain paper-clay form the components; the building blocks for these objects that I build and grow.  I hope to encourage those childlike moments of wonder – the visual and tactile joy of the simplest things that surround us.

The photos demonstrate flimsy rings or discs of pure white porcelain and porcelain paper-clay form the components; the building blocks for these objects and wall pieces.

Wendy uses Royale Porcelain and ES 600 (Porcelain)
