"Settled in the Soil" 
This work has a social and political context for me, and speaks of my relationship with Aotearoa.
Walking the English countryside I would often find pottery shards. These ceramic fragments link to the past and are a glimpse of history, fashion and social behavior.
Aotearoa reveals a different story for me.
Fewer shards and historical remnants exist. However, instead, I mostly unearth domestic cattle bones, provoking me to consider the huge impact Europeans and colonialisation have had on this
The wire form is a complementary piece to the Artemesia lidded urn. The relationship between these pieces lies in the development of an idea, and the making.
Sketching is the design process I use that helps formulate ideas; wire has a conceptual aesthetic, similar to the drawn lines in my sketches. For me, seeing the wire construct allows me to reconsider the form internally and externally.
Ideas mull in my head, like a lone light bulb in a darkened room.
