The heart of my work is buttons. I create handmade ceramic buttons, which I combine with vintage buttons as well as recycled sweater felt to create unique, one-of-a-kind floral arrangements.
I use a large variety of found objects to press into the clay in order to create my button designs. I find beauty in often small and overlooked objects. I use everything from old belt buckles to seed pods. I always say, "anything with a circular pattern, I envision as a button!" It is my goal to use these often discarded items to create beautiful buttons, which twisted into my finished flowers bring smiles and great joy to the viewer. Floral arrangements are most often used to celebrate and commemorate a special occasion. My flowers do not die and therefore offer a lasting reminder.
