My fascination on tree barks started while taking pictured of Birch, Oak and Cedar trees in Pacific Northwest. I was mesmerized that they all seem to have scars on their barks and try to tell their stories. By brush painting porcelain slip over red stoneware clay, I can create tree bark look and tell the story.
