"Strong, determined, individual and sensuous figures, from a female perspective"

I am a ceramic sculptor. I sometimes work on entirely abstract pieces, but my current interest is the abstracted female form. I want to make strong, determined, individual and sensuous figures, from a female perspective. For the larger pieces, up to 60 cms, I hand build hollow, using very thin coils, but the smaller ones I make solid and hollow as needed.

I mostly use grogged stoneware paperclay, but sometimes grogged porcelain for the small ones. Slips and oxides are used on the surface and pieces fired as needed to get the effect I want. Each of the sculptures is a unique piece.
