About

The arts of map making and ceramics are not as disparate as would first appear. Both work with the surface of the ground, the former recording datum points and selecting elements for scale representation, the later selecting surface elements to combine and transform into vessels or sculptures. Taking the physical surface of the earth and making scale models of our planet therefore seemed a natural progression; combining my love of ceramics with my passion for maps.
