I am presently creating spoons that verge on being functional/dysfunctional.
Silver, copper, aluminium and the occasional small bronze are the metals I work with.
I love working with clay for the immediacy of expression whilst experimenting with glazes to transform a clunky pot into a gorgeously glazed clunky pot.
‘Nerikomi’ with delicate porcelain, I describe as the prima~donnas off clays, is also a wonderful and playful technique to work with.
Results can be both rewarding and devastating; when after many hours the last piece… suddenly becomes shards: Whilst at the same time being unique pieces in themselves…. Now I have an extended artistic license.
