The recent sculptures explore the expressive possibilities of deformed and dislocated mass.
The sculpture emerges from pressing ceramic materials into and around reconstructed sections of plaster moulds that have themselves been cast from hand - built representations of teapots and other ceramic vessel forms. The legacies of these compressions and subsequent additions, are the consequential scars, deformations and dislocations stamped into an extruded and shifting mass.
The surfaces are worked onto with thin layers of slips, engobes, acrylic and other media.
