My work and ethos is centred round the idea of ceramics and its strong association with craft – as a material and its context within the fine art spectrum. I’m interested in the connotations porcelain and terracotta have inherited, their history; symbols of trade, status, function, hierarchy. All factors which compare with the constant debate regarding crafts and its position within today’s society. Questions raised by this discourse resonate through my practice. A fusion of coil building and levels of flux cause each form to oscillate, as if in response to attempts at fixed definition.
