I am a sculptor making work to fit into a domestic setting. My inspirations are eclectic and include the jigsaw form, architecture, abstract sculpture, and furniture. I roll out clay into slabs, cut and assemble them, model then add pattern and texture. Most work is fired to stoneware temperature in a wood-fired kiln for the 'warm' finish caused by the fly ash. Sometimes I use the 'raku' firing technique - low temperature, removal red hot, then placed in combustible material to blacken unglazed areas. Pieces may be on wooden or slate plinths and incorporate wire, textile or other materials.
