I bought a pot of beautiful Chrysanthemums to use as imagery for making decals. But before I could use them they had faded. I wanted to show the poignant beauty of impermanence. In my early career, I made a lot of things with fabric. I stitched garments to supplement my ceramic income and learned the art of easing a sleeve into an armhole. Everything is cyclical.
