Path and Inspiration Following many years of evening classes and working alone in my home studio my direction changed in 2022 with 4 weeks at Clay College and ongoing input from Ashley Howard.
The Buncheong tradition of Korean pottery helps to inform my ceramics; in addition, I draw inspiration from textile patterns and the natural world.
My work is placed in the long tradition of integrating Eastern and Western pottery dialogues for a contemporary audience.
Process and Practice I work in stoneware; it is strong, durable and ideal for everyday use. My work is thrown then decorated with coloured slips and underglazes. I use an electric kiln.
I aim to retain the fluidity of the clay in my finished pieces. Use of brushes to apply slips and colours help to accentuate the plasticity of the raw material.
