The series "Nine Vessels for Yianna" was created while I was pregnant with my second child. They are a departure from my previous work in that they returned to a more traditional vessel form which echoed my own changing body.  The pieces explore the body as container-- of memories, experiences and new life.  The blue drawings, which were loosly inspired by anatomical drawings, suggest tattoos.
