Art has and is a life long journey through many mediums.
My work is largely inspired by forms from Australian flora and fauna, to the fragile ice and mossy mountains of New Zealand.
Over the past 20 years I have spent time exploring landscapes both internally and of the natural environments where I live.
Experimenting with the qualities of clay from the earthy tones of the Australian land to the smokey pit firings using seaweed, sawdust and salt. I love the quality of burnished unfired clay, sculptural forms that weather back into the land, speaking of fragility and temperance.
Capturing the ephemeral weathering process of my work through Photography and film has allowed me to document the gradual changes of my sculptural forms. Watching the clay surface textures change, eventually eroding by the natural elements blending into the landscape. The spontaneous patterns that the clay transforms into is reflective of the natural climate changes they are exposed to by either the earth, water, fire and air.
