Wrapping for pains

mixed media 8x195x73cm

This installation consisting of 3 sections with a light table in the middle, comprises many materials (ceramics, glass, rubber, eggshell, metal, plaster, felt, Fimo etc) and is an introspective review of painful life experiences.

The way we were

porcelain, orange skins, lace, found old copper dish 13x31x28cm


This work connects with memory and nostalgia. The antique copper dish evokes

simpler, less sophisticated times. The dried orange skins reference basic foods. The porcelain shapes are tactile, pure white, slightly varied but all of a type.
The circle arrangement is intrinsically pleasing and balance, with one shape in the centre. The piece works in the round from any point of view.
This also connects with Newton’s Third Law of Motion in choice of groups of materials, but this work is calmer, with greater equilibrium.


Newton’s third Law of Motion

hand-built porcelain, eggplant skins, old lace 8x30x30cm

00060033 cropped

This law states that action and reaction are equal and opposite. I chose this name to infer

the concept of balance between dissimilar shapes and materials. The abstract porcelain shapes, eggplant skins and lace all hearken from disparate material worlds. I have brought them together here to make unexpected connections between physical elements, and equally to connect plastic art with scientific rules.
One of the eggplant skins remains empty: this offers a point of entry to the concept of balance,
central to Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Motion.


Hidden treasure

green glass, unglazed earthenware 14x45x30cm (variable)

This is a rough piece, as if found unformed in the wild. Embedded in the dark, matt, opaque

clay the bright, shiny, translucent green glass catches the light and sings out, like gold or other precious minerals found in the earth. Our earth is a treasure trove of precious substances which we must use wisely.
