Simple statement vessels thrown on the wheel creating tall Standing Forms, large wide open bowls and shallow dishes. Porcelain is chosen for it’s inherent characteristics of smoothness, whiteness, translucency and it’s appearance of delicate fragility that belies great strength. Decoration focuses on texture with masses of pierced and bored holes inspired by barnacle shells.
Porcelain wall pieces depict woodlands, coastal stretches and abstract themes in rich textural detail.

Moon Jars - a new departure

Inspired by Korean Moon jars, 2 large semispheres of porcelain are thrown on the wheel then carefully joined, making a full round form. Decorated with subtle milky white or black glaze and new textural crater glazes that bubble and crackle.
