The form of each piece evolves through an idea, possibly a shape or a feeling. That is followed by sketches, sometimes maquettes and then a ‘development through making ’ process.
Consideration is given to material, textures and surface finishes. Initially my training was with clay, pottery/ceramics, and the beautiful and creative pieces that can be made using this material. However, over a period of time I have been inspired to incorporate the use of other materials, where I think there is a relevance and relationshop to the subject matter. This decision has enabled me to attempt larger and more adventuresome work and introduced me to the beauty and skills of these other materials such as metal and wood.
