Geology is at the core of my ceramics:
I work with porcelain, which I love. When my hands are in contact with it, I just can’t stop making. Into the porcelain I mix other materials, something from a coastal cliff; waste from a copper mine; clay from the foundations of a building, then I scrape back to reveal fantastic and colourful strata.
I delight in the repeated refining of my pieces, revelling in the challenge of taking risks with the materials.
I am constantly striving to create the most lustrous, delicious pieces that only reveal their full natures and hidden treats on close inspection.
Each piece tells its own tale. By incorporating materials from the places that inspired them and then adding drawings, maps and hand written notes I provide hints towards a place or time of significance.
