Artist Statement

‘My art practice spans many different approaches using the elemental and diverse material, clay. My fascination with the material itself comes from how it transcends civilization, from the birth of the functional object and preventing the spread of disease to hi-tech uses, such as the noses of spacecrafts. Through a varying approach to making I attempt to examine human behaviors. Through the process of production I capture gestures, ideas and motifs, generating proactive thought and bringing to life these behaviours. Through exhibitions and their design I communicate these ideas as offerings, bringing the viewer in as an intrinsic part of my process.’
