I make slab forms based on the urban landscape, industrial, architectural, historical. I coil figurative forms observing body language. All are wood fired to stoneware.

Movement in and through space: the language of the spatial relationships between people evinced in street gatherings and in contemporary dance, these have informed my figurative work over several years.

The above are sensual, physical experiences with emotional and psychological reverberations. After dance clay is the most direct, physically responsive medium that I know. That one’s dialogue with the medium can be frozen into permanence with fire by processes which continue a sensual dialogue and have elements of chance and risk add further to the excitement.

More recently I have also been making slab forms based on observations from the urban landscape, architectural and industrial details, decay and construction. These I also wood fire to 1280 plus degrees C allowing the process to make its own contribution to the pieces.

STUDIO: An exhibition of recent and past work, work in progress, and the workshop facilities. The studio is 800 sq ft, and I run workshops from it, so there will also be students around.
