Venessa Hogge - efflorescent flowers



Vanessa Hogge is inspired by all things botanical. She creates dahlias, chrysanthemums, dashes, hydrangeas and daphne in pristine white porcelain and black clay. Her compositions are efflorescent in that they “flower out” as though they were blooms from an internally held salt in water. Hogge’s…
