STATEMENT

 

A collection of porcelain for the table, a gathering, where time and occasion
are valued.

A warm, soft satin glaze envelops the calm but strong forms in a smooth, rich,
tactile surface. Form and function come together with subtle traces of the
hand that are left when the porcelain is soft, creating an intimate
engagement with the objects through use.

The objects reflect and absorb the ever-changing atmosphere that
emphasise the porcelains sensitivity to light and a translucent quality of
fine edges. Concerns of function and form inspire these objects, thinking
through making identified within an applied art context.

Work can be found in both public and private collections.
