I aspire to capture characteristics of an environment in an object. Through colours, textures, patterns and emotions created by movements and rhythms in nature, I endeavour to translate how valued and inspirational natural environments are.
The pieces are hand built using traditional coiling and pinching techniques. Oxides in the clay body create the colours which are an integral part of the building process. The surface is scraped to reveal the colours and patterns, then sanded to create a smooth surface texture.
