Dorrie Sullivan

I incorporate stories, some whimsical, some reflecting dream and some quite literal in my work. My most popular designs include cats and dogs joined to imagery of every-day scenes, their antics reflecting what they may be "thinking" if only we could read their minds. Natural little comedians, they often make us laugh with their antics. My story bowls are a snapshot of a moment in life with a touch of whimsy. Many create an interior space of the house with an open window to see the outside.

I generally keep my forms simple as I enjoy adding very colorful, highly detailed decoration to each piece, and no two pieces are ever the same. Each piece is designed to join the utilitarian to something that can decorate your living space. My primary medium is porcelain fired to cone 6 for strength to withstand the microwave or dishwasher.
