Nature has always been the ultimate art form for me, something that many aspire to imitate or reproduce. I too draw my inspiration from the natural world, from it's constant changes and cycles, from its magnificent surfaces - suppressing my jealousy of this uncultivated beauty. Instead of rivaling nature I aim to complement her.
I have always been drawn to nature and the environment that surrounds us. My current work is mainly decorational and with a recurring subject of birds. Suggestive lines, colour and texture plays an important role in my work and I am constantly striving for simplicity.
Each of my handbuilt pieces is unique and often goes through several firings to achieve the right colour and tactility. I use Earthstone Original clay fired in an electric kiln to cone 6 temperature.
