Path and Inspiration I have engaged in creating with clay throughout the course of my life and regard it as a vital as an adjunct to my art psychotherapy practice. I have always been drawn to is physicality, simultaneous vulnerability and strength. For me, the sensory experience of working in ceramics is therapeutic and I never fail excited by its unpredictable process. In recent years, I have become influenced by oriental pottery, attracted to its delicacy and simple forms.
Process and Practice I have a studio space at the Petr Weigl Studio in north London. I work primarily with slab-built forms, though I also throw domestic vessels. Handbuilding allows me to follow a more organic, unintentional process, not being interrupted or forced, allowing me to be guided by subtle changes. Throwing, on the other hand, requires discipline and I strive for consistency and uniformity using this method. I am attracted to transparent, celadon glazes, which enhance textures etched into the clay.
