As a ‘ceramic gardener’ I work with clay, and other materials, in the most sympathetic ways.
Producing sculptures and paintings cultivated into varied forms. Abstract self-portraits of my interaction with the world, creating and digesting. The paintings hint into the fluidity and transparency within the emotional and material world. At times resembling a humble cabbage, beetroot or various stalks and tubers, they tell a story of our lifelong interactions with the world.
Rooted in tradition, I predominantly look at primitive clays and building techniques. They allow me to harness certain rawness; accounts of our early cultivation of either organic or inorganic thoughts or materials. The objects bridge the gap between art and design, sometimes functional, sometimes installation.
