I graduated from Harrow in 1994. My work is mainly thrown, working in series and making one-off pieces. Seascapes, and the urban landscape I work in influence my work. I find inspiration in the seemingly random and mundane-pebbles on a beach, rusty tools, peeling layers of paint, found objects which tell a fragment of a story .It’s these things which inform my colour palette. The textures and colours are important to me, as a way to express a narrative and achieve a patina of depth and variety. The vessels are used as a canvas to explore these ideas, and the myriad combinations of texture and colour. This unpredictability ensures each piece is unique.
