Ceramics / Sculpture / Design
Functional, Sculptural and Mixed Media Ceramic Art.
My work is storytelling, an attempt to represent in clay, the physicality of the environment I inhabit, and the interactions, relationships and experiences I encounter.
I often use locally sourced clays and ash for glazing and incorporate found objects and non ceramic materials into my sculptural pieces in order to root them intrinsically into the place of their conception.
Wood firing is a process which I adore, as it is an extension of the making process.
Influenced by the flame and ash deposit, the pieces become imbued with a story of their own.
As well as my more sculptural works, I make tablewear, jewellery and large scale works for commission.
