Ceramics

My ceramics are based on two techniques - slip casting and throwing.

 

My sculptual work uses slip-casting, a magical process in which everyday items are transformed into the ceramic.  The inspiration for this work comes from the objects themselves and their histories, both real and imagined.  I am consistently drawn to themes of loss, particularly the loss of craft and skill. But I am also drawn by the power of these objects to tell stories and capture memories.

 

My functional work is thrown on a potter's wheel.  I love simple clean forms, designed to be used and enjoyed every day.

 

I first fell in love with ceramics over 12 years ago, with the discovery of a small drop-in studio on my University campus.  Ten years of self-taught making and evening classes ensued before I enrolled onto the Ceramics diploma (H.E.) at City Lit college, London in 2013.  I now live and work in west Wiltshire.
