I’ve had an itch for years that I’ve wanted to scratch.
It was a secret and insistent desire to make sculptures!
Finally, this year, having closed my studio in town to begin working from home, I took another step sideways and made the decision to finally indulge myself.
Hence I joined our local pottery club and not only do I have a studio to use in town, I have access to a kiln and a group of fun and inspired potters.
Its been a few months now of experimentation (I’ve given myself a year to be a beginner) and slowly I am becoming clearer about the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of this new media.
Hand built ceramics are the first step in my intended process. Once pieces such as this one above are fired and glazed, I will be building them into mixed media pieces and installations.
Stayed tuned as finished pieces are unfolding!
