FLATBACK FIGURE SERIES
"In modern society, we buy so much but value so little. My ceramics aim to re-evaluate and challenge this notion."

I employ original discarded objects, charged with meaning and concealed beauty as my starting point. Whether it is an Eighteenth Century clay pipe, a 1950's jelly mould or a piece of contemporary plastic packaging, I believe the inherent value held within the transience of our collective domestic ephemera still has a story to tell us. By calling upon the rich language of our ceramic heritage to make a new dialogue, I create a narrative captured within the permanence of the ceramic medium. My aim here is to make comment upon us all as today's consumers.
