"Through my porcelain work I examine scale, detail and energy, creating organic forms for subtle illumination.

My pieces are largely inspired by natural spaces and objects. I am intrigued by the endless variations in nature and the idea of an ongoing evolutionary process of adaptation. I am a coast dweller by choice and gather visual information from the precious things the sea offers up to us; the minutia we don’t usually see to the raw geology of an ocean ravaged cliff-face.

My pieces are slipcast and individually manipulated when they are still soft. Textured glazes, slips and diamond polishing create some unexpected and enticing surfaces. The work is fired in either an electric or gas kiln to create various colours of translucency in the finished pieces."
