The Process Stephanie designs all forms using a mixture of 3D software and hand sketching. The sketches are brought to life by turning plaster on a small manual lathe, a process Stephanie learned while studying under a master tableware designer in art school. The plaster forms are then converted to flexible rubber masters used for duplicating slip molds efficiently. Stephanie primarily works with porcelain slip. She is drawn to the juxtaposition between the appearance and texture of porcelain when it is glazed versus raw. This aesthetic is used on all of the bowls that Stephanie creates. Each piece is hand painted with a line pattern prior to the final glaze fire.
