Curious Collections

This is the key start to my ceramic journey.


During an International Bronze Age project in which my work was chosen for the online exhibition I was introduced to sawdust firing. I immediately loved the engaging process and the oily black result with red/orange flashes of the terracotta clay. Since then I have experimented with alternate firings to emphasise the idea of individuality and variation within a ceramics.


This collection is a celebration of diversity of life on this planet and the personalities that are seen in living creatures. Inspired by the notion of natural history, the reflection on people collecting things (my own being hats) and my own journey into figuring out who and what I am. Though I haven't finished or figured out my journey I have found the pleasure of knowing no one is the same and that individuality needs commending.
