I have always been inspired by natural organic shapes, using simplified curves and lines in my work. My range includes vessels, bowls and vases, thrown, turned then finished with bold graphic motifs. Layers of engobes, applied at the leather hard stage create a solid matt surface of colour becoming part of the form itself. I enjoy working within the constraints of the paper resist technique, continually refining my process of cutting and applying 2D shapes to create a visual balance between surface, form and pattern. I sand each piece after firing to create a smooth tactile surface.
