Artist’s description

Inspired by weathering and decay, I create feminine shaped vessels out of clay and use a combination of colour and texture to mimic surfaces I have found in nature.

I throw and trim symmetrical vessels on the wheel and then distort and tear the clay to create more interesting shapes. How the lives we live change and shape us, I want the pieces I make to evolve from perfect and symmetrical, to weathered and distorted – no longer perfect, but beautiful.
