Artist Statement

 


Centred in ceramics and glass, my practice re-imagines functional objects, raising questions of diversity within a societal and cultural framework. 

By liberating associations of pattern, materiality, origin and purpose, hybridised items are created that suggest an alternate world view.

Digitally produced bio-geometries and overt materialities are cited alongside familiar patterns and forms to loosen context, allowing the viewer perspective from habitual conceptions or refuge from convention.

Through attention to craftmanship and by employing metaphors such as fragility, delicacy and precarity as means to create intimacy, I aim to confide a sense of wonder within the otherness of the works.
