My work is an exploration into material and place observing in particular processes of interdependence between water and geological change; exploring simple construction methods; blending opposing materials – porcelain, china clay and china clay products with indigenous and combustible material; laminating, recycling, working rhythmically, sometimes decisively and sometimes tentatively; merging imagination with memory  in search of insights and surprise!

The intention is to capture a moment in a process of change and also to reflect both physical and metaphorical aspects of a place in terms of the vessel, to suggest equal importance to ‘exposed’ and ‘hidden’ elements of both.
