Statement

The shapes and structure of plant life provides me with endless inspiration. When translating these ideas into clay, the challenge is to respond to the sculptural quality of the plant whilst also reflecting their fragility and sensuality. I like to take elements from different parts of plants, particularly water lilies, to create my own hybrids.

At the moment I do not use colour in the work, preferring the beautiful surface quality of unglazed porcelain. The whiteness of the work emphasises the form, and the shadows they cast become integral to the piece, however black has recently crept into the work in the form of plant imagery.
