Art Aid Ukraine (34/56)


My current work revolves around the idea of beauty and simple aesthetic ceramic forms. Nature plays a large role in my inspiration for both the design and decoration of my pieces. I endeavour to create a one off surface each time by capitalising on the unique characteristics of the plants and other organic materials that I collect. As a maker, I have the capacity to exploit the variables of surface, form and scale.

I don’t necessarily want the surface to look too contrived or for each plant to be clearly identified on the surface. I look for a random, layered and abstracted finish to the surface. The vessels are thrown in white stoneware or semi porcelain and are then highly burnished. This is to encourage the fuming process and to capture the delicate qualities of the materials I use in the firing process.
