These works are made in earthenware with slip casting as the main production method. This has allowed me to produce limited shape, batch production runs and individually decorated 'one-offs'. Mainly classical in form, my influences are predominately European; architectural motifs, the Bloomsbury Group's Omega Workshop, old English pottery, Memphis and Wedgewood have been a source of inspiration in particular. Having always had a deep respect for the European classical tradition, my work has explored the application of contemporary features in conjunction
- with classically inspired shapes. Since moving to NZ, I have also incorporated ideas that respond to my adoptive Pacific country.
