I have always used illusionary and playful surface effects in my ceramics. The exploration of solidifying liquid clay through casting and mark-making with coloured clay using screen printing or other methods all contribute to the ongoing development of my work. I respond to atmospheres and the palette of a place. Through combining colour, textures and graphical qualities my work evolves and allows my ideas of perspective and visual movement to emerge. Focusing on detail, in a world where we are used to zooming in on a digital screen, my work often represents this aesthetic both metaphorically and visually.
