The Samsara Series
of glazed porcelain planters is composed of sculptures of organic shapes that act as fossilized vessels for new life. The various forms echo ideas of life, death, and the cycles of nature. Husks, bones, shells, pods, carcasses, they all carry the power of something no longer living but able to sustain new life in a cradle of fertile soil.
