When I make a torso I aim to show the human body as a landscape,
at one with the land – Mother Earth personified.
I spent many months thinking about birds and watching them before going into the studio. I saw fat wood pigeons squabbling in the hawthorn, seagulls chasing air currents on a windy day, a tiny robin singing with the voice of silver from a tree branch. Later on in my studio the first ceramic art sculpture emerged almost by itself. I had to make very few changes and adaptations.
Each bird is personal and here on her own terms, telling the story about what it is like to be a Bird at peace with its surroundings and self. Later on, Chicken, Pheasant, Owl and Peacock sculptures emerged. Each one is hand built, glazed and then smoke fired.
Masked Gods and Mythological Shrines
“There is but one Creator, and we mix”
My House Gods are a modern take on the ancient Roman House Gods Lares and Penates, and I have given each a new area of influence….
be it protecting Slippers from the Puppy or
asking the God to take on the stigma of a Bad Hair Day
