Vendor since 2017

I am a ceramic artist who creates sculptural porcelain objects which challenge light and balance.  They evolve on the pottery wheel as cylindrical forms and whilst still wet, I alter and manipulate the surface to create entirely new objects.   The indented and squeezed rims enhance the translucency, texture and stability, while still appreciating the sensual flesh-like quality of the material.

These works are also influenced by indigenous basket weaving and the natural organic nature of the material.  The indentation I impose into the porcelain changes the hard visual exterior of the forms to a soft woven-like characteristic enhanced by the rhythmic repetition of the weave.
