Ceramic artist

Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Focus

Ceramics, Installation, subversion

About

My ceramic work often takes the form of social comment. I frequently use historical models as reference or mixed with contemporary influences, subverting familiar forms to represent something other than their intended design and function. Humour is a consistent strand within the work. I like to explore the absurd, the provocative and the satirical.
