3D printing is a fascinating new departure, yet it is an extension of my work in ceramics and enamel. It enables the freedom to be playful with ideas and to make pieces with the most intricate forms. It allows me to take the work off the wall, to create small pieces in space, which may be moved or held. They belong to the wall pieces in concept, yet are ‘free’ and playful. They are electroplated, first in copper, then silver, sometimes oxidised silver.
