Where does anyone’s creativity come from? Could you name that place? Could you show it to the person next to you? This is the place that this body of work comes from. Outwith of time, place, and thought. A place outside of places that then becomes material. Throwing vessels and vases is a way of grounding myself and exploring the mind. Porcelain in degrees of delicacy brings one in touch with ideas and feelings of transience. Its fragility forces one to be careful and to move slowly. Yet the rough stoneware vases hint at a freedom of movement and strength that centres oneself in something undefinable and non-contextual. By working alongside Katherine Glenday for many years and gaining immense insight into a sacred practice of ceramic making I have brought these qualities to my own work and which I hope to bring to the viewer.
