‘I set out walking map in hand, a present-day hunter-gatherer in search for materials. My ceramic practice is mobile, the process of making work is contingent on what is found and can be transported. I collect and use estuarine mud, excavated clay, brick and rock fragments to make glazes and clay bodies which are regionally specific. I work with traditional techniques to make ceramic objects that connect maker with locality and local concerns: It resides in a conversation between imagination and experience.’
