My work is wheel thrown porcelain. I use it for its smooth, white surface and quality for making clean, elegant shapes as a perfect canvas for my colours and marks to create my range of contemporary ceramics. I work with the dry, chalky surface, applying a bold, but muted palette of stains, oxides and slips, splashing and sponging away areas, adding inlaid and sgraffito lines, aiming to create imperfect and unpredictable marks. Most decorating is carried out on the wheel to convey a feeling of movement and spontaneity, I’m drawn to the idea of a static object conveying movement.
