My current body of work combines my love for clay with the process of hand building, drawing and painting. Using earthenware I combine human elements, which are an expressive means for exploring the narrative content. I use facial components as sites of expression and emotion, and tend to work from the subconscious, allowing room for personal interpretations other than my own. Coming from a background in drawing, the figure has always been a source of creative influence. Using ceramic sculpture as a focus, my work explores the line between the humorous and the bizarre.
