My work is hand built and fired in a kiln in my studio in central Cape Town.
In making my clay works: vessels, sculptures, and hand-hewn functional pieces, I aim to give to the viewer an experience of the material used: qualities of tactility through texture, a sense of permanence in the forms.
My pieces will stimulate your imagination as you recall familiar historical shapes , pushed beyond boundaries so as to belong in the present.
I would like the viewer to feel the need to touch and to hold the sculptural forms, running fingers over hills and valleys, and looking inside cavities to see newly-created places of your own.
Clay holds an energy of the earth from which it was taken, therefore adding an elemental grounding to any environment when formed into a fired art piece.
I invite interior designers, interior architects and homemakers to use my pieces to add texture, authenticity and personality to any carefully curated space.
I adhere to the Slow Movement in making. I seek to make less, but profoundly more beautiful.
