From a young age I’ve liked the malleability of clay and have explored the use of this material making items ranging from large sculptures to vessels and wallworks. My interest in materials extends to metals, slate and glass and these have been combined in particular projects. I’ve recently completed work in terracotta, making sculptures of friends’ dogs and garden Bird Baths. My particular favourite is using porcelain. I find its delicacy and translucency are so right for expressing ideas about the flora and fauna in my surroundings.
