I create vessels that relate to and have dialogue with each other, their environment and those who interact with them both visually and by touch. This communication occurs by engaging in many ways, physical, spatially, emotionally, and spiritually. My forms capture this interaction, that precious essence of ‘being-with’, that can facilitate acceptance, dialogue, and potential for our well-being and collaboration. Using a selection of clays, terra sigillata’s, glazes and firing techniques, illustrate the rich diversity and properties of those materials, reflecting qualities, of presence, tacit knowledge, unity and diversity within humanity. Our use of clay, and specifically vessels, documents our human journey over millennia, mirroring the above values which were the essence of the research for the MA I completed in 2023.
