During this early period I was completing the work at the rate of 1.2 pieces per day. On August 29, 1998 I was completing the work at the rate of about one piece per month -- a difference in both the time it takes to work on a piece and the quality and size of each new work. The early days were filled with experimentation. I tried many different approaches as I tried to perfect the Porcelain Process. Since 1992, I have worked out most of the technical problems with the technique. Today's work is larger, more complex and intricate. Each final artwork requires up to one year to complete. A "snapshot" of the 35 finished pieces on February 18, 2000 is typical of the status on the work in progress on a given day. On August 15, 2005 major pieves (numbered) were being completed about one piece per six months while the majority of time was being spent on making beads and bowls.
