Nature and the environment are constant influences on my work. My inspiration for this outdoor installation comes from the beautiful, fierce and fascinating natural environments around us.
“Cosmic Circles” presents the circle as a form found in nature and explore the textures formed by it; We find circles in so many flowers, seeds, plants, the rings in a tree’s growth which sometimes are shaped by the weather, the wind, the waves, the passage of time, or the touch of animals, including humans. The rhythms of the circle also hold close associations with the cycles life and often have cosmological imagery.
Working on a new serie of Dogu exploring the Raku technique!
Brilliant results, it was a great fun to fire the Raku kiln in the studio courtyard with Su and Alex!
My homage to Avebury Sculpture exhibition this year explores the Neolithic landscape of Wiltshire by using the imagery of the stones and the circles themselves, combined with designs influenced by other prehistoric survivals, both natural and manmade, such as the Uffington white horse.
The pieces are made from a selection of different clays, which are emphasises by the absence of glazes. The inspiration of prehistoric pottery and cave paintings is revealed through finely drawn lines, as if partly obscured by the passage of time.
