Artist's Statement
“I enjoy ceramics as a vehicle for timeless communication between people and cultures. It provides a context for reflecting on human activity. The forms I produce are intimate domestic objects, designed as small decorative sculptures to be used as tableware for special occasions. Ceramics express the values of the society that creates them. My pottery reflects the function of hand-crafted objects in our lives and becomes a canvass to explore my artistic concerns of colour, visual space, illusion and perception. Surfaces created celebrate the natural environment through abstract floral decoration and texture.“
