Mountain Clay ceramics

My pieces are wheel thrown or constructed from slabs and pinch pots to create unique pieces that I love. I rarely make the same piece twice and when I do they tend to vary in size, pattern and glaze so if you like a piece grab it while you can!
My work is inspired by the mountains where I live in the Kinglake Ranges in Australia. I also have memories from traveling to China as a child and seeing the dramatic mountains near Beijing, which seem to grow out of nowhere. The tree motif has gone through a few changes since I went through a major bushfire, from straight blackness to re-growth and now full trees again. The magnificent Mountain Ash gums on our property are huge and towering and are my main inspiration. I’m also interested in the contours and typography of the landscape and use engraved lines to show these and to give movement to my pieces. I am influenced by nature, the stillness in the forest, the leaves and branches in the wind, rocks, water, what is left behind and buried and the concept that ‘grass will grow over your cities’1.Anselm Keifer 2010.
