Path and Inspiration Everyday sensory experience, organic forms, travel and historical artefacts, particularly the integration of decorative design in everyday objects in African and Indian art, all inspire my ceramics. I also have keen interests in photography and textiles, painting and drawing which all impact my work. In creating my ceramics, I explore form, colour, pattern and texture to design and make work that has a strong visual presence, and which may provoke a sense of joy when viewed and used.
Process and Practice Function, texture, weight, balance, scale and shape are all carefully considered when designing my ceramics and jewellery. My pieces are hand thrown or hand built, painted and partially or fully glazed. Fired to 1260 centigrade.
