My ceramic practice has, for some years, been a reflection of the coastal and harbour environment in which I live. It is curious the way sea erodes and carves the rocks and those spaces that link and separate them, somehow evoke a silent relationship that fascinates me, especially the tiniest spaces between rocks and the almost seam-like joints.
This is reflected in my vessels … reminiscent of stones and boulders shaped by wind and water..…repositories of stories, encounters, objects & feelings.
In my ceramic practice the physicality and tactile nature of working with clay, – kneading, shaping, surface treatment & firings – are inseparable from the idea and form. They provide both the time to contemplate and the necessity to focus.
