A sculptor and educator who specialises in ceramics, casting, alternative firings such as pit, raku and saggar techniques.

I am interested in relationships, how you can affect one element by introducing another, from the arrangement of forms, chemical combustions to human interaction. I am also fascinated by the technical side of creating. I like to have an understanding of how things work and how they are made, which I believe gives me greater influence when playing with the elements involved, to skew results into more complex aesthetic curiosity and beauty.
