Path and Inspiration My work grows from the gaps between functional and conceptual space. I’d like to express mood and emotion and communicate the ineffable through material while recording the spontaneous reaction to clay, oxides, metal and other raw elements.It also expresses cultural reflection where I draw inspiration from the long history of Chinese ceramics and ceramic art from the rest of the world especially the fine earthenwares made in the neolithic period.
Process and Practice I use a mixture of techniques in my work. Some are wheel thrown and some are hand built or slip cast. I then try various combination of clay body, engobes, glazed and oxides and wait for the surprise when I open the kiln.
