Path and Inspiration My work revolves around the idea of beauty and simple aesthetic forms. Nature plays a large role in my inspiration for both the design and decoration of my pieces.I endeavour to create a one off surface each time by capitalising on the unique characteristics of the plants and other organic materials I collect.
Process and Practice As a maker, I have the capacity to exploit the variables of surface, form and scale. I don’t necessarily want the surface to look too contrived or for each plant to be clearly identified on the surface. I look for a random, layered and abstracted finish to the surface.The vessels are thrown in white stoneware or semi porcelain and are then highly burnished, while making sure not to remove all throwing marks.
