I have always used Illusionary and playful surface effects in my ceramics. The exploration of solidifying liquid clay through casting, mark making with coloured slip clay using screen printing or other methods all contribute to the on going development of my work. Alongside this, I mix up plaster for moulds and texture forming tooling to work with.
Through combining colour, textures and graphical print qualities my work evolves and allows my ideas of perspective and visual movement to emerge. I tend to focus on details and smaller visual aspects. In a world where we are used to zooming in on a digital screen, my work often represents this aesthetic both metaphorically and visually.
My recent wall installation ceramics and sculptural pieces evoke a sense of place or journey. I want to offer the viewer to travel from reality to imagination; in a overstimulated - world offering the transformative state of reverie. Shifting views are critical to question our perspective of the world and my work can only really offer this in reality, not here, ironically, on a screen.
