Industrial Nature

About this project

Recognisable flower elements that are used today in many traditional and contemporary health remedies and skin creams are incorporated in my vase forms. The shapes echo ancient Roman perfume jars and bottles that held oils and precious ointments for beauty and cleanliness.

The ceramics bring a natural order closer to home and allow it to gently thrive. The vases prolong the life of cut flowers because the clay retains moisture and breathes due to the way they are fired
