Artist Statement

I have always been interested in surface and the ability to create a finish that speaks of layering and aging. In my exploration of soda glazing I have achieved surfaces that resemble lichens and weathered walls. The works provide a formal canvas to explore the surface and to set up conditions for effects that can never be precisely repeated. The unpredictable painting with fire on the clay over the controlled mark making and construction develops a dimension of tension between the organic and contrived, of nature and man.

Like the forces of nature, unpredicatability plays an important part in the process and the final outcome of the surface.

The works consist of both functional and sculptural wheel thrown and altered pieces comprising a selection of ewers, jugs, bowls, stretched platters and my sculptural Murray River Red Gums.
