Porcelain Tumbler 'Bon Jour + Butterfly'
The surface technique used throughout Alice's work is a modern form of silk-screen printing, called Thermal Screen Printing. The screen prints are made from photocopies of Alice’s original drawings, using a Thermo-fax machine. Each piece is hand built using slab construction. The clay is rolled in to thin slabs; the prints are applied in various compositions and colors 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.
