“Vulnerable is the only way we can feel when we truly share the art we’ve made.
When we share it, when we connect, we have shifted all the power and made ourselves naked in front of the person we’ve given the gift of our art to.
We have no excuses, no manual to point to, no standard operating procedure to protect us. And that is part of our gift.” /Seth Godin/
My work is a visual record of both feelings and emotions, drawn from my own personal journey and experiences. An amalgam of Universal human perception and the intimate, unique personal moments that define us all.
Every object I create is a crystallisation of emotion, a reflection of the whole world formed within me, cycles of grief and joy, isolation and intimacy, reality and perception, a focused moment in time somewhere between the beginning and the end.
Clay is my medium of choice, allowing me to capture and express the moment with the immediacy of a single touch. An instant translation from thought to substance, a conduit for the rawest of emotions.
The work itself is symbiotic. A collaboration between heart, mind and physical touch.
As each new piece takes form, the direction may change, the journey rerouting me down the most surprising of hidden pathways where I may abandon the initial agenda to endorse the concept and accept the final destination offered by clay itself.
