Artist's Statement

Human imperfection in all its iterations is the re-occurring theme of my work.
Society prizes superficial beauty. My sculptures prove that the reverse is true.
The way we now choose to communicate increases the need for art to make a visceral connection.
Each sculpture strives to tell a story of pain, fear, and hope through a multi dimensional engagement with its audience.
Clay, soft, sensually tactile, and a primal element of art throughout history, is my base material.
Each coil built piece is assembled, layer by layer, I create movement in the piece by manipulating the sculpture whilst still pliable.
The fired sculpture is coated with stone then carved, sanded & hand polished. Other surface finishes combine liquid metals, stains & paint.
By cutting through the surface layers, I am able to deepen the emotional context of the piece.
