My ideas are triggered by observations and experiences of existence and its transience. The interplay of natural forces and ever-changing light, such as along a shoreline, are influential.
Much of the work comprises multiple forms or pieces which can be re-stacked or repositioned. These features may be evidence of an indecisive mind, but they are also expressions of constantly shifting planes of emotion and experience, where confusion and certainty collide in momentary clarity, the balance so fragile.
As a child I declared a great liking for mud. Through school, college and university I enjoyed escaping to and tramping across landscapes, the wilder and more rugged the better. Not surprising therefore that I find in ceramics an opportunity to combine the two.
My ceramic forms are hand built and I find that working the clay and glazes helps me to identify my thoughts and develop my ideas. The mixed emotions of apprehension, anticipation and hope on opening the kiln never dull.
