My practice-based research follows a career-long passion for translucency and mark making using porcelain and bone china.

My recent pieces evolved throughout lockdown when I was able to devote precious time to study in detail images previously gathered on coastlines and changing tides from a wide variety of locations. My latest wall pieces challenge the boundaries between horizontal and vertical imagery. Light and the interplay of translucency both internally and externally has manifested itself in these latest pieces. These transformative materials constantly beguile and challenges my ceramic practice as a maker.
