This hand built and sculpted porcelain teapot is one-of-a-kind. The surface decorative technique is a modern form of silk-screen printing, called Thermal Screen Printing. The screen prints are made from photocopies of Alice’s original drawings. This piece is hand built by rolling the clay into thin slabs. The decorative prints are applied in various compositions and color is applied using colored slips. The clay is then assembled into the desired form.

Ceramics, MFA 2003
Alice is inspired by the bold, rich colors and patterns of damask and brocade fabrics, architectural details from Georgian homes, Turkish mosques, Islamic tiles, perching song birds, deer, vines, clipper ships, and bouquets of wild roses. She enjoys making pottery that can beautify one’s home and enrich one’s life.
Alice works as a full time studio potter and lives with her husband and two children in Boston. After she received an M.F.A in ceramics from The School for American Crafts at RIT in 2003, she later taught at Roberts Wesleyan College, RIT, SUNY Brockport, and Houghton College.
