Biography

Australian Artist working in clay.

"My strong relationship with the tactile nature of clay forms the central theme of my making. Through clay, I can express my thoughts and feelings about the world. I have developed my own clay bodies, glazes and slips to help me capture the fluid nature of clay. I want the material qualities of clay to be visible in the finished piece. I seek to express both the movement and stillness that echo the natural world and provide a testament to the effects of time. My work is a dance, or perhaps a conversation with clay. This may show in many ways, such as the fluidity in a thrown beaker, or the weathered, rough textures in a sculptural piece. My way of making and firing allows for each piece to tell the story of its becoming."
