The focus of my work as a contemporary ceramic artist has been the compelling materiality of the clay and my connection to it. Clay is a beautiful substance with which to work, malleable, compliant and sensual. It possesses a will of its own and so the process between maker and clay becomes a conversation, an intimate dialogue. To completely immerse oneself in making by hand is a very human and enormously gratifying and valuable experience.
My latest body of work explores the processes of Nerikomi and Kintsugi for the creation of unique and decorative ceramic objects.
