About me:

Having graduated in 2002 with a First Class Honours in 3D Design; Glass, my work to date has been driven forward by exploring tactility and fragility through the medium of blown glass.

Previous work has explored themes of imperfections and concealment, often producing multiples of a form to communicate a concept. Fragility has been explored through thinness of form, cracks, crevices and hollows.

My proposal for this residency moves to porcelain. I aim to explore porcelain through slip casting and the distortion of forms. Conveying fragility is key to my work.

I am drawn to pushing and molding forms to sculpt their contours when they are in fluid state; with glass when it is molten, and with porcelain slip through casting.

I intend to explore surface manipulation and light interaction - and the relationship this has upon the aesthetics of sculptural porcelain forms.

Drawn to the purity of form in the natural colour found in porcelain, I aim to investigate how light passes through this, or surface decoration, to embody an ethereal quality.

My work completed to date has crossed boundaries within the disciplines of installation and sculpture with work being exhibited on the floor, on plinths, suspended, or installed on walls.
