‘Porcelain is the most seductive and beautiful of all the clays. Although the somewhat challenging and labour intensive process, neriage, is rarely used by artists today I am continually attracted to the hidden essence and inimitability of each piece that emerges from the kiln.’
This exploration has resulted in the production of a unique and contemporary range of porcelain vessels, wall panels and buttons.
