My inspiration starts with a single object, which is developed and interpreted in different ways. I am influenced by my overseas travels but mainly draw on my experiences around the home and family. My work is kiln formed: cast or fused.
The Out of Context Series took it's inspiration from the humble brick and the art of construction.
In Transient Isle Series I am looking at the oyster shell and the island where the creature that built it lived and died. I developed my designs around the layering of the shell and the parallel changes to the island; of its' ever shifting sands and mans' interventions. The life cycle of the beach, the textures of the coastline all influence these pieces.
