The figures and heads are inspired by cycladic figures - a group of mostly marble carvings found all over the Cyclades islands in Greece and dating from around 3000BC onwards.
I was struck by their strong mysterious aesthetic. Mostly female, what they were used for, what they represent, remains an enigma.
Each sculpture has their own unique character and are named accordingly. I work on the pieces often for days or weeks, firing a number of times until the the form and surface feel in tune.
