Creating each piece of pottery is a rush generated as I try to balance the control I have over the clay and the uncontrollable nature of the medium, the functional and the decorative, the rough and the fine, the large and the small. Injected into my pieces is a range of influence from the rough textures of pod seedlings to pebbles worn soft over, from the mixing of simple forms with spontaneous decisions to create original shapes, from nostalgia of the past to the shock of the new. Each piece possesses an individual personality.
