Artists Statement

Artists Statement

I work out some of my personal, social and political issues through my pot making. I aspire to make work that embodies an aesthetic awareness, that also holds ideas and wisdom. This is expressed through repeat images, often of domestic objects.

The work is hand built using terracotta earthenware clay. I make my still life drawings into decals, firing them onto white glaze, painting the shadow on with under glaze, leaving the clay exposed. The work has been multiple fired.
