Through the glazed surface of coil-built cylindrical and elliptical vessels I explore a visceral sense of nature, its seasons and cycles. Material qualities of the clay and glazes relate directly to textures of growth and decay found within diverse urban and rural environments that are fundamental to my practice. Recent work reveals developments in scale enabling me to further investigate the gesture of brushwork and encourage greater interactions of layered slips and glazes upon the bisque surface.
