My ceramic pieces and its surfaces are a canvas for my love and lifelong
pursuits of art, painting and drawing. They depict scenes that describe a
sometimes whimsical narrative, as the hand drawn images are placed on
primarily hand built paper porcelain vessels.
All things in our natural world excite and inspire my images , be it the
birdlife in my garden our beautiful heritage of fauna and flora in SA or the
lovely bright colors in our ocean.
I enjoy looking at the relationship between form and decoration, it is my
intention to create a dialogue between the two hoping the one
compliments the other .
I enjoy all stages of making especially the ‘green ‘ ware in which I use
stamps and foliage to create a textured canvas or add sprigs for added
At this stage of my process I start having an idea of color and start
imagining the finished product. My vessels are functional, I glaze the inside
to make it watertight, so even though my pieces are often purchased for
purely decorative purposes, they are lovely to showcase a floral display..
