I was raised on the rural coast of Devon during the time of great social economic and technical change; the 1950’s 60’s and 70’s. We have reached a seminal moment in our history - the threat to the existence of marine life and habitat due to scientific and technical invention of plastics and pollutants.
My work considers the beauty of the environment , using clay bodies and mimetic glazes to convey the raw energy and dynamism of the coast. I employ various techniques and genres, exploring functional forms through the language of sculpture, to the development of glazes to encourage and engage with thoughts of rural coastlines and marine life.
The result is a balance held between two forces, the power of the ocean and man’s relationship and impact on it through geometric and technical interventions.
