My practice is inspired by relationships between people, our environment and patterns found in nature. Words such as dependence, empathy and progression have been current themes in my work. The sculptures are made in multiples resulting in a silent dialogue between each other. My practice reflects the saying “the process of becoming, rather than a means to an end”.
I believe that there should be an even balance between the language of the material and my impact upon it. I therefore let the clay speak through simple manipulation where there is room for the clay and glaze to speak its own language. An element of play is introduced after their firing where the sculptures are situationally placed with each other in site specific environments.
