ELYTRA SERIES:
PORCELAIN WARE ADORNED WITH THE BEAUTY OF NATURE'S MOST ENDANGERED BEETLES


Jewel Tumblers are an exploration of ceramic glazes which emulate the natural iridescence found in jewel click beetles – beautiful and endangered insects whose carapaces reflect brilliant structural colors. The forms of the porcelain tumblers themselves imitate the distinctive wing cases which are unique to beetles, called elytra.

The first in a series of works intended to reflect the overlooked beauty of beetles, Jewel Tumblers remind us of the immense beauty found in nature.
