THE MAKERS MARK
Ceramics have been in history for thousands of years. All ceramics are used in everyday life — tea bowls — bowls — plates — vase — sculpture. Ceramics bring a feeling of well-being. I’m part of that being.
When developing a block of work — in mind’s eye — snippets are recorded in each piece mimicking nature — all colour, shapes are provided — created into uniqueness.
Telling stories using metaphors — icons — are a way of life’s recordings.
Ceramic materials are chosen to give a degree of…uniqueness. They form the canvas to create.
I love using porcelain and my recycled clays — opposites attract.
Inspiration grows as your work develops. [I’m] inspired by decaying wood — harmony — space — trees — rust — ebbtide — wetlands — silt — lava — all things found natural.
Fossicking in the natural environment is a force — create.
Primitive art — basic tools — water — fire — wood — air…these I find in parts of the world, as in Ubud — Lombok — Central Australia. [I] love the connection of ceramics.
I am my work place — my inner being.
I’m so looking forward to exhibiting with Stephanie — an excellent curator — excellent gallery.
“SILT” is all new work and my major exhibition this year.
My future creativeness is to go beyond.
