I strive to make work which communicates, challenges and fulfills. The inspiration for my ceramic work originates in geometrical forms that appear in the landscape – the march of high tension power lines across a field, or a piece of razor wire tracing itself against the sky. These images are a reminder of the impact of humans on this planet, yet they also intrigue and satisfy me with their straight lines and complex angles. In clay, I impose geometrical form and imagery on complex woodfired surfaces. I attempt to duplicate what I see around me, and explore the duality of my admiration and fear of the alterations that surround me and to which I am intrinsically connected.
