want each pot to convey its own spirit and character...to
have a pulse and a heartbeat. I want the marks to reflect
the journey of exploration and learning in each pot, just
as a wrinkle or dimple depicts expression and character in
a human face.
impulsive desire we all have to want to touch, and the inherent
emotional need to be touched, underpins the technical, creative
and emotional foundations of my work.
personal intuitive touch is an integral part of these pots
- a dent in the soft clay, a tear, rip, and a finger or handprint
in the glaze. I also love to explore
the rhythm and movement of throwing clay on a wheel, excited
by the freshness and spontaneity of the results.
