"my new ceramic work responds more to my emotional feelings and decorative ability interpreting the environment I live in."
My professional carer in ceramics began in 1998.
Along with my Raku ceramics I have introduced a new body of work, stoneware contemporary ceramics.
Where my Raku work responded to technical artistic ability and firing processes, my new ceramic work responds more to my emotional feelings and decorative ability interpreting the environment I live in.
I spend a lot of time sketching and painting ideas for my new pieces. This approach helps me to develop beautiful considered objects of ceramic art. The flat forms act like a canvas to paint on, abstracting my paintings into feelings on how I see the landscape.
Vitreous slips, clay slips and engobes perform almost like paint on a canvas these liquid clays allow me to use them as an emotional expression on my work, technical ability yes, but a freer creative process for me.
