About this project

This body of work was shown at AWARD as part of the British Ceramic Biennial, 2015. A distillation of various observations I have made in different locations, firstly in Stockholm and in subsequent cities in the UK it comprised of a series of dyads each is a visual sketch in clay of some of the intriguing and unexpected relationships that occur in our built environment. My influences have been as varied as railings, steps, bricks, facades of buildings mixed with elemental features from nature.
