I make to connect.
My aim as an artist and maker is to bring people together through a shared love of clay, landscape and beautiful objects.
Through the production of beautiful, tactile, everyday objects I am able to form relationships with people, connect people with objects, objects with place, and place with people.
It is by repeated and often shared use of beloved, everyday objects - the mug, bowl, jug, vase, pot - that we find a sense of community with others and with the objects themselves.
Using traditional ceramic processes of wheel-throwing, hand-building and illustration, I create objects that remember my touch and long to be held. These objects have a connection to the human body that formed them, and the landscape whence they came.
I am particularly influenced by the natural environment, the Australian landscape and human interaction with, and within it.
