about the artist
Wherever my journey begins, clay, metal, glass, thread, whatever the route I decide to take, ceramics, jewellery, glass or textiles,
I am always aiming for the same destination.
A moment of pleasure in a busy world.
A catalyst for thought in an enquiring mind.
A moment of still for a peaceful soul.
Having long appreciated how the everyday objects that we use and that surround us can add to the quality of our lives, the pieces I make have always been a mix of functional and sculptural.
I mix materials and processes to create bodies of work that explore the boundaries that surround us and how our response to those boundaries shape us as people; those boundaries can be cultural, mental, physical, implicit or explicit.
