Handmade animal and human figurines, made from clay, have been with us since as early as 24,000 BC. From the earliest times we have been making things out of readily available mud. It feels good to work and can be fired in an open fire.
I think it is the simplicity and raw nature of clay that attracts me to this medium, however I enjoy any creative process and although I have worked in clay for thirty years, I also love photography and have dabbled in glass slumping, fabric printing and painting.
I am also happy when I work from a brief on a commission. The Robin Hood, among others, came about through a brief. I’m particularly proud of a joint venture in 2016 with Isabelle Miaja of Miaja Design Group, Singapore. Miaja design group worked with me to design a series of pieces for the Luxury resort, Ozen by Atmosphere, on Maadhoo Island in the Maldives. This involved supplying ceramic pieces for nearly 100 rooms in this beautiful resort.
In recent years I have been able to indulge in my passion for photography. It’s wonderful to get out and mix with the natural world with camera in hand. In 2018 I was awarded a Master of Art in Photomedia.
