New Work - Sulphur Series
Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are inquisitive, expressive birds with very individual personalities. As regular guests to my backyard I have had the opportunity to develop an understanding of these birds. Their cheeky nature allows me to observe them up close and provides me relief from the troubles of the world. Through portraiture I hope to capture the essence of their personality. As a wheel thrower I am drawn to the fine, responsive medium of porcelain. The smooth dense surface is perfect for hand painting and scratching into the clay itself. This way my vessels become a tactile expression of the bird.
Cups For You
Cups are personal, intimate items. Cradled in your hand they can become a comforting moment in your everyday life. All of my cups are hand painted and made to be held. A gift for you or someone special.
