I make sculptural, geometric porcelain vessels. I use nerikomi techniques to put patterns through the clay, and then I hand build. After bisque firing I further decorate with resists and then I smoke-fire and wax.

I’m fascinated by the geometry in nature, especially as growth and random chaotic forces skew and distort the initial perfect symmetry. My ceramics explore the multi-layered effects nature creates via the laying down of strata, weathering and erosion
