Photograghed by Phil Sayer.




My clay creations are seemingly personal yet often draw upon found sources, such as images from books and postcards, as well as photographs I have taken myself. Works are inspired by the flow of things seen every day, as well as by the art I look at, from the past. With a passion for the European arts and its spiritual persuasions, I find ways to translate this source material into my own experience in the form of drawings, paintings and sculptures, which are crafted from red and white earthenware and found objects. The works are freighted with strangeness and perhaps seem a world apart, drawing the viewer into a beguiling perceptual experience.
