Her affinity with the material spans more than 30th years and reflects its evident mastery. The designs on each piece are raised or inlaid amplify the patterns. The work is functional and decorative with large signature pieces of heirloom quality. French butter dishes, teapot sets, casseroles, vases are among some of her many fine works.
