My work reflects a fascination with natural and marine forms, and female figures and heads. I combine flowing lines and sweeping curves in the slab construction of my barium glazed pieces.
I work from thin slabs of white or buff stoneware clay bodies, which are sometimes impressed with texture from manmade or natural objects, before cutting, forming and assembling into the finished piece. My methods of cutting and assembling clay are similar to dressmaking and the use of wax resist and surface pattern are related to textile design. Decoration is also added at the completed stage either as applied textured detail or as surface pattern with slips, oxides, resists and glazes. Sometimes beaded jewellery, hatpins and hair adornments are added after the glaze firing.
