I use hand building techniques with a focus on the vessel form, texture, and surface decoration.
My making is an impressionistic response to place and experience. Working from photographs, memory and observed detail, ideas evolve in terms of form and finish. My current body of work is informed by the Icelandic landscape following recent visits.
Finely rolled slabs of stoneware clay are assembled and subtly manipulated. This forms a canvas on which layers of oxide, stain, and combinations of up to five glazes are applied with a brush, and finished with distinctive dribbled markings, so each piece is unique.
