“My work is inspired by life, nature and form. Each piece reflects positive energy and movement. Taking the inanimate and bringing it to life.
The ‘Spike’ and ‘Flight’ series are built on a base which I use as a blank canvas. The spikes are my brush strokes. Each one is individually pulled then attached to the body and manipulated to create a natural flow. All pieces are hand built and unique.
I mix my own glazes, some of which I have been experimenting with for years, in particular, the erupting green and mottled pink prevalent in my work. Because of the complexity of my forms I use the pouring method to glaze which is unpredictable, adding further excitement to the final piece.
Generally, my choice of clay is stoneware, with its high firing temperature my pieces are frost resistant which allow them to live inside and out. “
