Work

Tidal Range

This work is inspired by the rise and fall of the tide. Dry glaze with a high clay content emulates low tide, hand inscribed surfaces represent the reeds and margins of the creek. Soft grey and turquoise glazes have been developed to reflect other tide and weather conditions.

Boats

The boatyard opposite my creekside studio is a constant inspiration. The way the boats sit on the water, on the mud at low tide. The hulks that slowly deteriorate, awaiting renovation.

These sculptural pieces made from coloured stoneware clays reference boats but are not intended as complete representations. Some suggest movement, some static. Grouped or single.
