My clay vessels are born from an empathy for the human condition. I reflect on the themes of Acceptance, Rebellion, Indifference and Hope. Concepts that are central to all humans.
I aim for a style that is modern, elegant and timeless. Using the human form as a base, I introduce aspects of architecture, clothing and fabrics into some of them. The works are surrealist in style.
My work is 'low tech': meaning I promote the use of less technology and more naturally based activities. Using clay is a beautifully tactile and rewarding experience and it helps me to re-connect with nature. Every one-of-a-kind work is created with passion for hand building with clay.
A burnished exterior creates a natural lustrous finish which reminds me of smooth human skin with slight imperfections. The works are meant to be enjoyed for both visual and tactile qualities. They are meant to be held and appreciated by feeling the grooves and curves of their landscape.
