Creation Date



Dysnastes Tityus
Stoneware with Glaze
5" x 4.5" x 4"

Dysnastes Tityus is inspired by the beetles I would find burrowed in the sand pathways of my family’s garden. I had a lot of fun experimenting with the glazing of this piece by layering blue and green tones to give the beetle its colorful and metallic body.

Symbiosis is a visual commentary on the relationship between self and environment. The vessels act as a manmade element while each of the attached ornaments, inspired by local species, compliment the shape and movement of each piece. Each work reflects the impressionable and impactful nature of how mankind interacts with the natural world, and vice versa.
