Artist's statement:

I primarily work in clay, loving the transformation from plasticity and malleability to texture and strength once fired. Moving away from the uniformity of the wheel, my current work is hand-built combining large vessels with my love of the ocean. Uniform coils are formed into eccentric vessels adorned by carefully sculpted marine life.

Clay is an unforgiving medium which can tear your work apart - many anxious hours are spent awaiting the outcome of firings! 

 

Sizes are approximate.
