I have been working professionally with ceramics since 1991. As an artist, my first years in the industry focused mainly on surface design, specializing in skilled brushwork decoration. I became passionate about the whole making process, and the relationship of the form and the surface design together. Most recently I have been exploring throwing very soft clay and distorting the forms, producing a much more tactile pot. The indentations and distortions, the play of shadows and highlights produce a dynamic quality. I am also fascinated by the translucent properties of porcelain and in particular how brushwork can be illuminated by light shining through the pot. Please visit my website for more information.
