The organic geometry found in marine and plant life provides endless creative inspiration. In my sculptural ceramic work I want to capture the delicacy and strength of natural architecture like that found in sea corals and tree branches. Light and shade also play a part in the fragility of the work as the pierced openings cast patterned shadows. I hand build with stoneware clay: coiling and shaping, piercing and carving. After the initial firing, engobes - white or coloured slips - are sprayed onto each piece before the final firing, resulting in a matt finish.
