A new direction…

Here is a sample of my latest work, combining new porcelain forms with my exploration and  development of crystalline glazes, (generously supported by The Arts Council of Northern Ireland).

I wanted my work to shift; to become more expressive and ‘fluid’ in form, conveying communication and relationship with each other; metaphors for people. 

The new forms are thrown and altered so that they are visually connecting with each other. Some are hand carved on the outside, following the contours of the piece to convey a sense of movement. 

Inside each is a stunning crystalline glaze in which crystals form during the firing; its spontaneous, unique outcome adding an additional layer of interest and significance to the work.
