This body of work is based on the simple meditation practice of counting the breath. The dots are counted as they are applied as a practice to keep a focused and clear mind. I mix various colors of ceramic stains into a liquid porcelain slip and then apply them as dots to forms that are thrown in porcelain on the potter’s wheel. The title of the piece reflects the number of dots that are counted and applied to the piece.
