My practice is inspired by relationships; relationships found between people, oneself, to our environment and to our experiences. Themes such as freedom vs constraint have inspired my current practice. I explore these themes through form, compositions and surface manipulation. I sometimes use different body parts to make different shapes in the clay showing interaction and result of interaction. My chosen materials and tools are also selected to enhance the meaning of the work.
For me the clay is a vehicle to express intense feelings that capture a moment.
I am interested in researching about my close environment and use its natural resources such as clay and woodashes. I also use found objects to incorporate in my work. This adds both meaning and helps to signify the importance of experience in an environment both physically and mentally. I am also interested in making the sculptures at different locations which both adds meaning to that specific piece as it captures a moment and place.
After firing the pieces I put them together in different compositions usually made from two or more sections. The pieces are sometimes strung together using metal wire. I see the sculptures as a composition, one note being dependent on the other in order to be heard.
