I am concentrating on simple forms, integrating balance and tension, stillness and movement, expansion and the containment of volume. All pieces are hand built and some are burnished to achieve a tactile surface. Some pots incorporate texture. The distinctive patterning is achieved in a secondary smoke firing.
Recent work sees a shift from low fired earthenware to high fired stoneware, combining rough black clay with white porcelain, creating strong graphic designs in contrasting colours.
