am inspired by form and the lines within it. Exploration of form
in clay began for me back in primary education at the age of eight.
Opportunities to study the mediums and processes of ceramics followed;
and despite a prolonged foray into the virtual world of 3D, I
have been drawn back into making.
In my current work I am exploring the form of objects from everyday
life; slicing and cutting through them offers different perspectives
on the expected. Their physical and visual aesthetics are held
up for evaluation, and opportunities are presented for narrative
or extended interaction. A requirement for functionality curbs
self-indulgence and celebrates their intrinsic worth as objects.
and surface treatment have begun to play a part, inviting humour
and identification; not detracting from the form, but serving
to spotlight it.
