My vessels have been inspired by the urban environment and by light and shadow cast by architectural form. The abstract marks of coloured porcelain are transferred onto thin sheets of porcelain, which are then cut, layered, assembled and joined in a plaster form. The translucent quality of the porcelain evidences this making process and allows the shadows of layers to be seen. Many years in Asia has also had an influence on my work. The Japanese aesthetics and sentiments regarding natural transience, distortion and fallibility of material and process are key concepts in the work.
