My work experiments with colour, texture and form. I enjoy the physicality of the processes, whether I am building up textured plates for printmaking, or sculpting clay. My collagraphs often take inspiration from the landscape, both real and imagined, but both the prints and my ceramics have become increasingly abstract.
My ceramic work is often about ways of containing space. I cut perforations into the clay to change the nature of that space. I like the contradiction between the extreme solidity of the ceramic and the transparency the holes lend to it.
Although I originally trained as an industrial designer, I find that I am far more comfortable and inspired by the act of making in an intuitive way, without the constraints of the industrial design processes.
