About the artist
‘ I have always been told that I learn kinaesthetically. In clay’s malleability and the sensory feedback it provides, the material lends itself to how I naturally come to understand my place in the world.
My material is both temporal and immortal. Ever-changing and ever present. Its transformation requires subjection to all of earth’s main components: mud, water, air and fire. The material is
gathered from beneath my feet. My hands mark and mold this earth. It’s an ongoing, primal,
elemental dance of give and take, connect and release. To gain and pass on. To begin and to end. The cycle repeats. I have learnt to appreciate this offering. To take only what is needed for growth and to preserve and protect the rest, to learn to observe and appreciate the gifts nature brings.
