All my vases and bowls are one off and wheel-thrown in porcelain. I search for shapes I find beautiful, making incremental modifications and teasing out new combinations of intriguing form. My pots have changed gradually over time; similar themes reoccur alongside new discoveries as I search for the perfect shape and surface.
I love working with porcelain and delight in the delicious throwing texture of it. I punctuate, interrupt and hone the profile of each piece by turning, making incised bands which are then highlighted by tactile glazes which reflect or absorb the light on their edges.
