I explore the qualities of clay to highlight movement, rhythm and volume. My ‘blank canvas’ is a thin cylindrical form, from which I attempt to capture the fluid momentum of the clay as it spins on the wheel. Bands are cut from this and manipulated at a critical point during the drying process. The forms either stand alone or interlock using two or more strands.
I also make a range of functional ware… mugs, bowls, vessels large or small for special occasions. I use porcelain and stoneware clays fired in an electric kiln in my Archway studio.
I graduated from the ceramics degree course at the University of Westminster and have exhibited ceramics in Galleries in Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, London, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Worcestershire, Pembrokeshire, Yorkshire. I have been an active member of the Crouch End Open Studios artists group since 2006.
