The rocks of my future, the rocks of my past

About this project

A series of mainly handbuilt, highly textured works, pushing the limits of what the clay can withstand during the making process, and how gravity works on each piece. This series of work takes a very experimental approach to both the making and the glazing and firing process, pushing the boundaries to create surfaces with great depth of both texture and colour.
