Blurring the boundaries between perceptions of the psyche (memory/dream/imagination), my work explores the sublime and almost ethereal qualities of clay, through which a universe materialises based on formations found throughout the natural world. By simulating and recreating these textural elements imprinted in my subconscious, they manifest into otherworldly forms and artefacts. Bodies of work are constructed around a particular theme, or technique of making, and are often inspired by geological formations or phenomena. Foremost these forms are a visual exploration of time and the temporal nature of existence. Using the fluidity of porcelain slip in a range of states I am able to explore the relationships between surface and substance, what is real – and what is imagined in a series of dream-like scapes of textures and compositions. Working intuitively with the serendipitous nature of the material, I reinvents traditional techniques of making, which form a distinctive and unique material language. My practice is currently studio based, which acts as a laboratory where I experiments and pushes my practice forward.
