Colourful, Inspired and Highly Detailed
Artistic, designer jewellery and intricate vessels
My jewellery, intricate vessels and small sculptural pieces, are inspired by precious objects and special moments. For me, creating is a beautiful way of recording life and increasing awareness.
My medium of choice is polymer clay, a contemporary modelling material made from polyvinyl chloride. The possibilities of this strong, light and flexible clay, continually excite and amaze me. I use a wide variety of techniques from different disciplines, including ceramics, glass art and metal work. Polymer can be a wonderful tactile experience, and I encourage people to touch and hold my work.
I started exploring polymer's potential in 2015. The more I experimented, the more I fell in love. Then in March 2017, I began selling my work in Montville. I have since been involved in a number of competitions and exhibitions, including the Ignition Awards for Ceramic Excellence on the Sunshine Coast, (where I received a Highly Commended), and Petite Pieces at Aspire Gallery in Paddington. With a growing number of collectors, I now also sell my work online.
I am mostly self taught, however I was very fortunate to complete a mokume gane masterclass with the late Tory Hughs. Tory was an internationally recognised pioneer in polymer clay, with over 30 years experience. She shared a wealth of knowledge and continues to influence my work. I have also completed an extensive single slice mokume program with Dan Cormier. Another internationally recognised and award winning polymer artist. A perfectionist in every way, Dan’s work in truely incredible.
I hope my work brings joy to those who experience it.
