My Clay work
I play with clay to form abstract, organic pieces which are inspired from shapes and textures of pieces unearthed from excavations of old civilisations.
My approach to these sculptural forms tend to highlight the linearity of the female forms with the use of coarse textures that contrast with smooth glazes. Simulating terracotta colours on the skin to juxtapose with the minimal colours of the fabric, thus resulting in unexpected finishing effects from the firing.
Other ceramic and sculptural pieces – I find that working with oxides, greens and blues give me a great sense of staying connected to the earth and water and my works emerge as grounded and minimal pieces that meld with nature. Groggy surfaces that contrast with smooth and crackle glazes.

I have my workshop in my home and fire the pieces in an electric kiln. The clay used is usually rough and groggy.
