I have always been passionate about working with clay, its therapeutic qualities inspire me to create. I take the inanimate and bring it to life.
My sculptures capture the essence of positive energy and movement. They are strongly influenced by my love of architecture and nature. I pair the two to provide exquisite 3 dimensional forms to enhance any home or garden.
The ‘Spike’ and ‘Flight’ series are built on a base form which I use as a blank canvas. The spikes are my brush strokes. Each one is individually pulled then attached to the body and manipulated to create a natural flow.
All of my pieces are hand built and unique.
I mix my own glazes, a constant stream of testing and apprehension. Because of the complexity of my forms I use the pouring method to glaze which is unpredictable and adds further excitement to the final piece.
Generally, my choice of clay is stoneware, with its high firing temperature. My pieces are frost resistant which allow them to live inside and out.
I am currently developing a series of work that reflects the challenges we are facing with Brexit.
