I have always been passionate about working with clay. Its natural elements make it a therapeutic and satisfying medium to create with. My work is inspired by life, emotion and form. Each piece reflects positive energy and movement.
My ‘Spike’ and ‘Flight’ series is built on a base form which I use as a blank canvas. The spikes are my brush strokes. Each one is individually pulled then attached to the body and manipulated to create a natural flow. All pieces are hand built and unique.
I mix my own glazes, some of which I have been experimenting on for years, in particular, the erupting green and mottled pink prevalent in my work. My choice of clay is stoneware; with its high firing temperature my pieces are frost resistant which allow them to live inside and out.
I am currently working on a series of work that explores and combines architecture, nature and landscape.
