I try to capture the essence of time in my work, something which can be seen in weathered surfaces, pebbles or crustacean covered sea objects.
All my pieces are vessels with a growing form to them. They are all thrown often upside down or in sections. Sometimes cutting sections away from the thrown piece and rejoining altering the form. Shapes evolve from piece to piece, carrying through ideas from one to another.
I continue to develop new colours and textures in the glazes and look for inspiration in my surroundings on the beach and coastal landscapes.
Sculptural, thrown stoneware pieces, with volcanic glaze.
