My work is hand-built, predominantly coiled and sits firmly within a Western tradition of Studio Ceramics which concerns itself with an exploration of the vessel form. A pot has a foot, belly, neck, shoulder and lip. These very ‘human’ references reveal an ancient relationship between mankind and vessels, a notion of ‘pot’, that vibrates through every culture from the moment we first learned to shape mud with our hands.
I like to think of my pots as dancers. Each ‘belly’ is a ‘waist’ and each ‘foot’ is set ‘on point’, allowing every pot a moment of weightlessness. A pirouette.
