About this project

A series of ceramic pieces that are drawn from medieval illustration, folklore and Outsider art. I’m interested in the space between fact and legend, exploring notions of the wild magic of nature and our own world of order and familiarity. Storytelling is a key theme to these pieces, suggesting distinctive characters and individual narratives. Created from a mix of hand building and press moulding and using layers of coloured slips and oxides, these objects feel alive and purposeful.
