My work is often a response to natural forms and landscape, inspired by a Cornish childhood. I love the sea and the distant gaze to the horizon, and in the Peak District, that same feeling is encountered where land meets the sky. I paint, and currently work in porcelain where I’m fascinated by the interaction between the form I create and the firing process. I use pit firing, raku or wood kiln, often with no glaze, celebrating the unpredictability of the results, and the combination of fragility and strength that is porcelain.
I have been a ‘maker’ for as long as I can remember and still have pots I made as a six-year old. Working in a tactile medium has provided an important balance to my professional career in video production. I did a degree in film and photography following a general art foundation.
