ARTIST STATEMENT

My work sits at a juncture between ceramics history, horticulture and curating. It is based on organic plant forms but seen through the lens of ceramics history - it has distinct conceptual and formal relationships with English and European porcelain; folk art traditions and studio pottery of the 20th century.

Many of these traditions had observation of the natural world incorporated in their making – the language of ceramics has a visual parallel in the garden – the pod, the leaf, the stem, the seed, the flower, the branch, the root – are a lingua franca depicted, or mirrored, within a broad ceramics history.
