Figurative ceramics featuring disrupted layered surfaces and porcelain or bone china clothing with steel pins. Some saggar fired pieces and charcoal forced air fired pieces. The work explores the way girls are constrained from birth to conform to an appearance and code of behaviour, to present a perfect face, and maintain the expectations of others. The disrupted surfaces describe the vulnerability beneath.
