Artists’ Statement

“Explorations in form, surface and texture continue with hand building now as important to the work as the wheel. 

Continuing research has renewed a long-held passion for prehistoric ceramics particularly the early Bronze age Moravian painted ware culture with their sophisticated forms and fine quality vessels.

White porcelain and textured black clay create a contrast in tone and texture.

Terracotta beakers and bowls with spirals of brush applied slip, finished with glossy glazes keep a part of the work rooted in the functional.”
