Large figurative ceramics and otherworks

Personal Statement

As a ceramic sculptor, I seek to represent the human condition in my figurative works.
I use a heavily grogged stoneware clay which gives a strong tactile element. Using iron oxide, I have painted some sculptures giving a rich, earthy texture. The firing process is then quite serendipitous but highlights the connection between humanity and the natural world.
Through the repetition of the human form, I aim to draw attention to the individuality of each sculpture, as well as recognising the collective power of a group. By the use of space and placement, a dialogue between the sculptures and the viewer is created
Some sculptures have closed eyes, giving a sense of peacefulness and serenity and inviting the viewer to contemplate their own relationship with the world around them.
I seek to draw the viewer into the space, to find a moment of contemplation and connection and a time to engage with figurative sculpture in an inquiring and meaningful way.
