Porcelain Ghost figurines range in height from 6" to 24".  Created in limited editions, each form is uniquely surfaced using ceramic decals.  In many cases, the decal shapes are taken from 1980s classic games, such as PacMan, Space Invaders, Defender, etc.  In other cases, I am using photographs of public transporatation, construction machines, etc.  Started in 2006 during a 6 month residency in Jingdezhen, China, the ghost series began as a response to classic mythological figurines mass produced in Jingdezhen.  While many of these figurines are meant to ward off ghosts, mine actually welcome them... No sense fearing what we don't understand.  Since then, the series has gained a lot of momentum, and continues to be a mainstay of my porcelain work.
