Thanks for you interest in my work. I'm going through a "fairy tale" phase right now. I've taken inspiration for a variety of sources including Aesop. I'm also constantly follow a the work of a few friends of mine: Beth Stichter and Chris Riccardo. They aren't on deviant, but you should look them up if you like my work.
Poor tortoise... First I thought it was wood, with all this beautiful markings and patterns. As I also do ceramic (not very good, the colours don't become beautiful most time...), I really look up to you. This piece is just wow.
