Path and Inspiration Graduating from Central St Martins, I worked in the film industry before moving into ceramics. I specialise in one-off sculptural pieces or sets of items made to commission. All my ceramics are informed by the urban environment of the city where I live and work as a paediatric osteopath: safe & warmly encapsulated babies share space with society’s poor and their cheerful skeletal dogs. Recurring themes relate to foetal development, birth and the biological journey which makes up a life.
Process and Practice My current work follows two distinct directions:
Slipcast functional pieces coated with decals of digitally manipulated images taken from my own original drawings. Though clearly contemporary these pieces hark back to a long tradition of blue-on-white pottery.
Tiny one-off sculptures inspired by embryological forms and themes of breastfeeding and human growth. Vibrant and glowing in intense shades of pink, orange and yellow these are playful yet exhibit a high degree of finish.
