“The idea behind my Emperor Bowl series is based on an ancient pottery form, designed to hold one flower.  I find that Asian-influenced forms lend themselves well to my coloration style, and the Emperor Bowl lends itself particularly well to the magnification of my optics, which is an important component of my work.”
