“All You Can Eat” combines new vessels and utensils with earlier cakes and surprising and contrasting elements I’ve made over the years — such as porcelain portraits of dead birds houses and pig hands. The resulting tablescape aims to evoke the full spectrum of feelings — from celebration to despair self-mockery to confrontation. This series started when I began giving voice to self-defeating slogans by adding them to pretty
mugs that could not successfully hold liquids (e.g. “you ruin everything ” “no one cares ” “why are you so…”). This twist on the concept of inspirational mugs and travel souvenirs inspired me to incorporate petals tattoos slugs eyes teeth stitched flesh and other unlikely motifs into the tableware. My new porcelain work— mugs plates forks coffee pots etc. explores the unspoken things we think about ourselves and each other during the everyday acts of eating and drinking.
