My body of work is diverse in intention and themes, but unified by the use of symbolic and narrative surface decoration as a means of communication.  Continued investigation in slip application has led to my precise vocabulary of lines, layers, patterns, colors and textures.   

The pieces I produce cannot always be neatly classified as art, design or craft.  Instead of pigeonholing work in one distinct area, I see these concepts as three points on a graph- some of my work is more towards one point, some is closer to another.  The versatility of ceramics invites me to explore across genres.

Porcelain Bud Vase

It's nigh impossible to find to two identical flowers, and it's not too much to expect the same subtle uniqueness in your bud vases, too. Ohio-based designer Cynthia Vardhan hand-throws each and every one of these porcelain pots, making each as individual as the blooms you display inside.
