About

My work has a primitive quality about it: slab-built from coarse, black clay, forms are torn, textured, rough-edged and purposely imperfect.

I am intrigued by the idea of authenticity as opposed to perfection – what it is to be truly ourselves stripped down to our core and fascinated by textural surfaces that reveal the passage of time.

I seek to combine a sense of the ancient and the contemporary whilst eliciting an intimacy that comes from the subtle evocation of the human form.
