My work, through form, surface treatment & glazing, reflects the qualities of the sea that have captivated me since childhood. The glaze I mix captures the movement of the waves crashing on the surf, the texture in the clay (created using shells and handmade tools), offers breakpoints and pooling areas for the glaze to work it’s magic on the eye.
Working with clay is working with the elements of the Earth. The process of preparing a slab, texturing it and turning it into 3 dimensional form is challenging and endlessly fascinating. Building pots by hand requires the maker to slow down, to consider every angle, curve, foot and rim; nothing is taken for granted. That attention to detail creates pots that offer a place for mindfulness, meditation and peaceful moments of self-care.
