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.
