I make ceramic sculptures inspired by nature, fairy tales, myth and other stories. I was fascinated by metamorphoses in Greek myth, and love the world of Narnia.
My figures usually have stories behind them. When I make faces, they often start talking to me and they build their own characters from there. Although I make shapes for them, I don't feel I create them. I just help them appear. The deep almost unconscious dialogue that I have with the subjects is the source of my joy of making them.
My work will bring smile to those who see them. That makes me happy.
I also make tableware too. They are inspired by plants, especially flower buds and leaf buds.
I have a postgraduate certificate in Applied and Fine Arts in Canterbury Christ…
