2018 INITI8 CREATIVE

"Plasticity of clay and ability to fossilize, holding both form and reactive surface in time, fascinates me.  Growth, movement and energy in Nature the inspiration, not its images. The work is the statement. It should communicate, not needing justification in words.
 

Vessels or sculptural forms in stoneware or porcelain.  Thrown, turned, altered or hand built.  Small translucent porcelain to floor standing forms. Volcanic surfaces from oxide or material in the body. The glaze firing is mixed, raw and biscuit ware fired together.  Guided by cones in the kiln,each firing is more a controlled accident than a thermocoupled predictable end result".
