 The Monarch Series

The Monarch Series, inspired by the butterfly of the same name, involves those techniques of slip decoration and burnishing as used in her other work.  The contrasting darker markings and the warm, golden-orange tones of the Monarch provide a most pleasing combination of pattern and colour. The flowing irregularity of the design provides a sense of movement around the form, delivering an air of grace and elegance such as would be found with the butterfly itself.
