Art of Clay – 2010
This work is based around using abstract form to express a state of mind and a stage in life. I want the shapes to convey a sense of harmony and balance, of nurture and protection, in a sometimes perilous environment.
Shapes and textures draw inspiration from my interest in landscapes, both rural and urban and a deep interest in patterns and textures found in nature.
Stability and harmony is dependent on different pieces slotting together and creating a stronger whole. This is expressed through substantial or wedge shaped bases supporting fragile or rounded, smooth shapes.
