I am a ceramic artist exploring constructed sculptural forms. I graduated in 2018 from the University of Wolverhampton with a First Class Honours Degree in Applied Arts and am currently studying for a Masters in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art.
My work expresses a lifelong search for perfection and balancing this with the knowledge that perfection is an elusive concept and ultimately an unattainable goal. One key aspect of my work is the relationship between objects: ordering, balancing and assembling them to create tension and/or harmony. My work is sculptural, often abstracting forms from nature and reducing them to their essential curvilinear forms from which I create constructions in three-dimensional space.
Clay forms the basis of everything I create although I often include other media such as glass or wire to complement or enhance the ceramic element of a project. The malleability of clay as a material and the tactility of working with it fascinates and excites me. I have used this to develop my technical knowledge and skill and create increasingly methodical and precise objects, exploring both slip casting and slab building in depth and striving for a more refined finish to my work.
