Salt glazed porcelain and stoneware, thrown and finished on the wheel, sometimes altered and assembled, including functional as well as one-off decorative or sculptural pieces. The work expresses contrasts, and explores traditional forms and detail. The shapes and banding are precise, yet the work is salt glazed and with mark making that evokes the turning, the softness and spinning of the clay on the wheel. The pots’ banding is particularly rewarding, suggesting on the one hand support, protection, safety and security, but at other times perhaps a constraint, confinement or caging.
