These pieces were created during a short period of time when I was working and studying in Umbria. I was fortunate to be able to recieve an artist's residency at one of Deruta's most famous ceramic companies, where I spent more than a month painting on ceramics. At the time I was inspired so much by the Italian landscape around me that landscapes just seemed to emerge from these forms as well. Working on forms that varied so drasically from the usual two dimensional painting layout was different, but also a welcomed challenge.
