welcome to this website.

This site is a sample of evolving recent works

working mainly in Ceramics- Stone sculpture.

Ceramic – Minerals Pigments, as become the main focus of inspiration.

It is within the landscapes that i find true inspiration,

The rock strata of that particular place,

the smells, sounds –

Local people working the land. Speaking the language of the land.

Layer upon layer beneath our feet are as the ancestors,

back to the fluid mantle of form.

my interest in the materials I use is of importance

and how they came to be,

I mainly do ceramics experimental works

making- clays – pigments- other chemical minerals.

The marble sculptures of which I have a keen interest are inspired by fossil and bone,

These are the themes I have been working on a number of years…

Fossil Bone series 2012
