Path and Inspiration I am self-taught and fell in love with clay and making completely by accident later in life. I am inspired by the juxtaposition between smooth and rough, dark and light and the way each piece feels to touch. Joy is important to me which is why I fill my work with reflection. Each piece is individual, no two are ever the same and I like the way this reflects life. When someone puts a piece of my work into their hand, just for a second, my hand goes into theirs and I love this about hand-made.
Process and Practice I hand-form delicate porcelain vessels, bowls and vases out of black and white porcelain. I line my work with platinum and gold lustres adding depth, reflection, glamour and celebration leaving the exterior of unglazed to create a tactile juxtaposition with the smooth 'molten-looking’ lustre interior. I never make anything bigger than I can comfortably create in my hand as I like to keep an unbroken connection to the clay. My work is fluid, fine and asymmetrical.
