My ceramics reflect the tactile joy of throwing pots and handling clay - the surface decorations invite you to pick the bowls up and feel the lumps and spikes in your palms. They take inspiration from ancient Chinese bronze vases, nature's prickly plants as well as from the punk movement. I like the contradiction between the often clean image of pottery craft, its smooth glazes, domestic usefulness, and the sharp texture of delicate spikes. When a bowl is pierced through, it becomes irredeemably 'useless', rebellious. I use bright colours in my surface decorations; earthenware glazes layered and combined with oxides.
