Path and Inspiration My ceramic work draws on my previous experience in building design. Every piece represents an effort to find a suitable and beautiful form. For me, the surface decoration must work in harmony with the three dimensional shape, to enhance it and bring it to life. The process of painting onto clay frees me to explore visual themes in an abstract way and to resolve and celebrate each piece in its final form.
Process and Practice I work from my home studio in South-West London and currently study advanced practice ceramics at Richmond RHACC. With reducing, reusing and recycling in mind I practice making more than I make. Anything not kiln-worthy is thrown in the recycle bucket. I make soap dishes to provide a lasting alternative to plastic soap pumps. Having been through a number of iterations, I now throw dishes on the wheel & once leather hard I cut them to shape and then add paint and glaze for a single firing.
