2015-2016 Portrait Studies

I began this series with the intention to teach myself portrait carving. Each piece was a study of an Iconic Human or "Thinker". These where my chosen subjects to better my skills for the future work I hoped to create. Each vessel was created out of porcelain on potters wheel, and carved with dental instruments.

The portrait series began when I discovered Ted Talks. The people that seemed to be the most inspirational to my work where those that brought me outside the box. Because of individuals like Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett I began considering philosophers and other leading Thinkers throughout history.
