I am interested in landscape, its influence on humans and their impact upon it through time. I like to explore these issues through my personal landscape and its influence upon me. Change is constant and its impact upon the landscape is stark. The global cycles that create what we see around us are referenced in my work by the process of creating a wood-fired ceramic object. In every piece there is creation and destruction. The metaphoric relationship between the geological process and the ceramic process is integral to my work.
Work Generally Available from:
My work is all hand thrown. For the large pieces I add coils and throw, building the pot up over several days. I use an iron rich, heavily grogged clay for its distinctive texture and rich natural tones. The jars are fired to stoneware temperatures (1300°C) with feldspadic glazes and iron oxide giving the diverse range of colours. The use of locally sourced materials such as beach aggregates and seaweed add dramatic spontaneity to my work.
