Capturing the Essence
My latest work I call LifeFORMS – it is more abstract, but I’m still striving to find the spirit within things. Lately, I’ve been thinking about what it is that makes things “feel” alive – even when you can’t be certain they are. I’ve explored this by playing with forms that aren’t identifiable as anything in particular and yet they seem to be based on a life form of some sort.
Sculptural and Functional
The functional pieces are made with organically throw slabs wrapped around hand made soft forms. This allows me to have a smooth form of a relatively consistent size but each piece is unique, soft and natural. They are glazed with natural tones and oxides resulting in shapes and colours that could have been formed by mother nature herself.
“ I see the world as infused with spirit. I like to find and illustrate the spirit within things. My hope is that you can feel it when you look at or touch my pieces and that feeling enriches your life as you live with it.”
