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 and freeze the moment in time. Bands are cut from this and manipulated at a critical point during the drying process. After a glaze firing my creative journey continues. The sculptural elements are assembled either to stand alone or interlock using two or more strands. I also make a range of functional ware… mugs, bowls, vessels for special occasions. I use porcelain and stoneware clays fired in an electric kiln. Work is thrown in series and each piece is unique.
