The vessel is a constant theme in my work, as is the relation of the inside to the outside. I am interested in the contrast between the aged and weathered textures of the exterior walls of objects such as pebbles and shells, and their silky smooth interiors when exposed.

For me, the experience of touching the vessel is as important as taking in its form. The curves of my large vessels are accentuated by the burnishing and polishing processes I use. With the small vessels, it’s all about the contrasting tactile experiences, and the tension between their apparent fragility and ability to balance.

I enjoy the unpredictability of working with fire and smoke, it enhances the organic and natural quality of the individual pieces. No two pieces are ever the same, only similar, as if part of the same ‘family’.
