I have worked with ceramics since I was two and half years old where at the end of the day I would be hosed down. Still now I am as much hands on with the material as I was back then.
Over the last few years my understanding of the material has developed and I have come to value the uncertainty of the ceramics when it has been fired. I equally consider its tactile quality when working with the material.
A particular interest I have is in creating ceramic jewellery. I received as a gift a ceramic necklace and this made me question the possibilities of using ceramics in jewellery. Using traditional methods such as slip casting or hand building I am able to form pieces to the scale or shape I design. I make completely handmade unique pieces, as glazes may not come out the same every time and every link cannot necessarily be uniform.
I have also created an exhibition piece which is sculptural functional large-scale jewellery based on the concept of a ‘White Elephant’. This has been the beginning of a series of functional large-scale jewellery, which I hope to create using the traditional building methods within ceramics and jewellery.
