My work is a collection of thrown, uncluttered porcelain forms. I throw and turn the pieces to a fine finish where I then apply my marks. I work with the chalky surface, applying stains, oxides and slips, splashing and sponging away areas, adding inlaid and sgraffito lines, aiming to create imperfect and unpredictable marks. Most decorating is carried out on the wheel to convey a feeling of movement and spontaneity. I use an ever growing palette of colours on the white clay, giving the hard porcelain the appearance of softness. I leave most of the surfaces unglazed, which lends a paper-like, tactile quality to the pieces.
