Pieces are an expression of feelings both deep rooted and transient, each form evolving organically in a responsive process using movement and gesture. Contrasting clay bodies such as coarsely textured black clay and highly refined white Parian/Porcelain slips are used at various stages of plasticity. This enables fluidity in creating the pieces whilst the contrasting palette is fitting for the metaphoric language within the work. The application of Copper and Iron Oxide fuses the elements of black and white while a traditional Mocha mixture emphasizes the apparently random yet naturally ordered reaction with clay slips.
