About this project

The tradition of Mud Larking, finding fragments of objects along the Thames foreshore is a rich source of inspiration for me. I collect images such as the Elizabethan Agas map and 17th century panoramas of London. They are documented memories of the river that I fire into forms and glazes made especially with the tidal landscapes of the river in mind.
Fragmented images and embedded textures from the Thames are an integral part of each piece; they are clues to a moment in time.
