“My artistic practice stems from my need for perfection, symmetry and order. I take raw clay and explore the materiality, pushing it to it's limits on the potter's wheel, creating flowing delicate forms. My inspiration comes from naturally occurring patterns such as the inside of a flower, coral and sea life.

The visual impact of my work is of great significance, I create sculptures that evoke a reaction in the viewer through the precision and symmetry.

I explore highly decorated surfaces using slip trailing to build up spherical patterns on sculptural forms. The slip dots add a textured element to the surface, which extends the art form from just a visual experience. Each pattern is applied freehand, with individually piped dots. I consider my work small-scale and miniature, working with a scale between around one

centimetre and twenty centimetres high. Even on the smallest forms, I exploit the tiny surface as much as I can with dense decoration.”
