A potpourri, including some small hand-painted tiles, created on commercial tiles for a show curated by Tom Billings. Also included are some of my shard decorated jugs, as they include ceramic bits (found on the Thames Foreshore in London), a modified porcelain Mao (as the sad clown that he was) as well as my painted Neolithic Pot from China in admiration of Ai Wei Wei's Coca-cola painted Neolithic pots.
