My work is primarily a celebration of the animal with influence being drawn from many sources: T’ang sculptures, netsuke, cave paintings & antiquity. More recently I have returned to metaphor and narrative with my own dialogue, focusing particularly on bears and elephants. I try to capture the spirit of the animal with my modelling techniques which is hand building using layers of soft clay. Larger pieces carry an internal clay skeleton. I use my own slips and oxides and more recently glazes which are hand painted and multi-fired to achieve subtleties in surface, texture, and colour.
